A beautiful pot which is hand thrown on the wheel by Yuta Segawa, a Japanese artist who creates miniature pottery. The work is finished with one of his five hundred unique glazes, which Segawa has developed through his practice. This piece has an icy grey glaze with highlights of light green at the opening, and hues of dark grey at the base. The body has a smooth surface on the exterior, and the pot is comfortable to hold in the hand. Segawa challenges himself through working in miniature, pushing the boundaries of what the body can make on a small scale.
This miniature pot is impactful both as an individual piece and as a group.
As all products are handmade sizes and colour may vary slightly.
About the Artist:
Yuta Segawa studied Industrial, Interior and Craft Design at Musashino Art University in Tokyo, before completing an internship at The Pottery Work Shop in Jingdezhen, China, and an MA at Camberwell College of Arts in London. He specialises in producing miniature pots, which are hand-thrown and hand-finished, using more than a thousand specially developed glazes which encompass the entire colour spectrum. Positioning them in large groups, to magical effect, or as individual pieces that sit in the palm of the hand, his work plays with the imagination. He works with various clays such as porcelain, terracotta and stoneware, experimenting with texture, and has had solo exhibitions in London, The Netherlands, Dubai, Tokyo and China.
