Yoko's exquisitely crafted pottery is inspired by her background in graphic design and her interest in classic pottery forms. “Ever since the pandemic started," says Yoko, "I have been wondering what I can do and how I can help. Is there anything I can do for this world, as an individual, and as a ceramic artist?”
