Masahiko Yamamoto Iron art Clay pot


Dimensions: H 22cm x W 19cm

Materials: ceramic

Method:  Hand-built 



Within the delicate contours of Masahiko Yamamoto’s ceramic teapot, the brass handle emerges as a striking contrast—a bridge between earth and metal. It’s warm, burnished tones offset the cool ceramic, inviting touch. Its form is a harmonious blend of organic elegance: a branch reaching skyward, a gentle flow, and a guardian of secrets. The hues of the ceramic portion evoke antiquity—a palette of earthen tones: rich greys, sun-warmed browns, and ochres. The vessel's surface is embellished with an exquisite, subtle repeating motif that alludes to antiquity in a stone-white glaze.



About the Artist

Masahiko Yamaoto’s work begins with digging, sourcing and collection clay from all over Japan. He says of the material “It’s not a matter of clay from here or there being good or bad as every place has its own character, its own unique qualities.” His process involves experimentation, learning about each type of clay and the best way to form and fire each type.

Although immersed in Japanese culture every day, Masahiko is influenced by a mix of different cultures, notably admiring creations from Southeast Asia. Masahiko’s experimentation and playful approach to clay as well as his eclectic inspirations creates exciting works that whilst rooted in Japanese pottery have bold character and an overall aesthetic unique to the artist.
