Yoko Ozawa throws spherical forms inspired by Yohaku (blank or empty space) which are then finished with a glaze made from yellow box ash (eucalyptus). Balancing perfection with imperfection, Yoko’s teapots are thrown to be perfect spheres, contrasting with the natural textures, tones and forms that she uses to finish her work, displaying an unquestionable understanding of control, balance and composition. 

The handles of Yoko’s teapots are finished with wood provided by Eugene Howard collected from the eucalyptus forests, which often becomes bone dry in the Australian climate.
