Yasuko Arakawa is a London based ceramicist, born in Kyoto, Japan, who’s work draws from her aesthetic background to create ceramics that bring to mind a heritage of craft whilst inspiring a progression of contemporary product usage.
Yasuko’s craft develops the affordance of natural materials into a form that allows the person engaging with the product a feeling connection, through her utilization of carefully mixed glazes and variant grades of clay, enhancing the experience of ceramics beyond function.
Her work also aims to explore the possibilities of narrative, through both function and form, to suggest playfulness and initiate imagination with everyday use.
