With an aesthetic rooted in both Japanese and Swedish culture and design traditions, Masayoshi Oya pairs simple shapes with playful glazes to create striking tableware and ceramic pieces.

He hand-works shapes on the potter’s wheel, often cylinders of varying heights, to create porcelain ‘canvases.’ In painting each piece, he is both evoking a random behaviour as the glazes play off the porcelain base and creating a pleasing balance between form and design.
