Aya YAMANOBE is a young Japanese potter from Iwaki-shi, Fukushima now based in Mashiko one of the biggest pottery centers in the Kanto region 100km north of Tokyo. Aya started playing around with clay making ceramic pieces while studying multimedia design at university and later established her unique style of pottery with delicately hand painted patterns and motifs that she creates often from her imaginations. All of her works are completely hand made by Aya herself in her studio in Mashiko. Ethereal beauty of Aya's works attract many fans, they are mostly only available at exhibitions held occasionally around Tokyo selling out quickly each time. It is a huge honour of UGUiSU's to be introducing Aya's beautiful work to people outside of Japan.
