Yuta Segawa Japanese, b. 1988

Biography

 

Yuta Segawa is a Japanese ceramic artist specialising in producing miniature pottery. He learned fine-art ceramic skills in Japan and China and developed techniques in producing miniature pots in London. All miniature pots are thrown individually by hand and he uses more than five hundred original glazes. "Miniature pottery relates to the issue of the relationship between artists' bodies and their works. It is a challenge to test the limits of what a human body can make on such a small scale".

 

Born in 1988 in Shizuoka, Japan, Yuta Segawa studied ceramics at Camberwell College of Arts, London, Musashino Art University, Tokyo and Jingdezhen, China. He has held solo exhibitions in London, The Netherlands, Dubai, Tokyo, China, and has a solo ceramics exhibition scheduled for this December at David Simon Contemporary.
