Yoko Ozawa Pottery

Some quirky ceramics by Melbourne based potter Yoko Ozawa.

Since I’ve never really had a chance to showcase any of their design orientated products I thought it would be a perfect chance for me to get hold of some imagery and showcase it on here for all of you to admire. I’m always blown away by the items that they pick up and the different designers in which they …
