We’re delighted to bring Japanese potter Aya Ogawa’s ceramics to the UK.

In Japanese there is a word 幸 (sachi) which translates as good fortune, and happy accidents. Aya’s craft embraces such serendipity, the unpredictability of nature and how it expresses itself differently for every piece. The unexpected expression of the cobalt glaze, because the kiln has changed, the season has changed, the atmosphere has changed, the makeup of the clay has changed. And in turn a vase, and its blooms, introduce nature into a room. Nature and pottery and the hand of the potter become inextricably intertwined.

Having studied under veteran potter Eric Landon, Aya now handcrafts each unique piece in her Tokyo studio. Contrary to their diminutive size, at just a couple of centimetres tall, each vase projects its presence and warmth into the room.

A set of four unique miniature vases.

Presented wrapped in a gift box.
