Yuko is a Japanese ceramic artist, very experimental and playful with the way she uses her glaze mix. She applies them as if she paints on the forms she creates. It makes sense to know she joined a glaze research group for a while where she gathered all kinds of information about glazes. Her experience there gave a huge influence on the glazing methods she uses now.
Living near the sea, she often takes inspiration from it and what it offers. Seashells are often used as part of her glazing process adding beautiful character to her pieces. Yuko's tablewares are work of art while also enriching our daily lives as a functional wares.
