Artist Handcrafts Colorful Ceramic Pots That Can Fit in the Palm of Your Hand

Small Ceramic Pots Ceramics Ceramic Vases Yuta Segawa

London-based artist Yuta Segawa has a penchant for hand-thrown pots and gourds. What sets this ceramicist's clay creations apart from others, however, is that Segawa's vessels can comfortably fit in the palm of your hand!

Each of the Japanese artist's small clay pots showcases an amazing attention to detail and a skillful understanding of the pottery practice. Like traditional vessels, the petite pieces are individually created on a potter's wheel. Using special tools and the tips of his fingers, he fashions the miniatures, which come in all sorts of shapes and silhouettes. Once completed, he coats each piece in a specially-developed glaze.

Rendered in a range of colors, the polychromatic collection exhibits and emphasizes the artist's preference for a bold and bright palette. These eye-catching pigments accentuate the individuality and distinctive aesthetic of his already-striking series, and aptly convey his artistic approach to pottery.

You can see more of Segawa's miniature pots, keep track of his exciting exhibition schedule, and learn about his pottery process on his colorful Instagram.
