Masahiko Yamamoto has crafted this teapot with a classical silhouette that blends form and function harmoniously. Its surface, a canvas of speckled grey and stone-white glaze, exudes the aura of the ancient. The sturdy handle, wrapped in rattan, complements the finely contoured spout. A quaint finial crowns the lid, completing its traditional aesthetic. The vessel's surface is embellished with an exquisite, subtle repeating motif that alludes to antiquity.


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.
