Motoko Saigo

Bowl 03 in stoneware D 15cm - White and blue


Sandstone piece handmade by Motoko Saigo in Paris.

Motoko Saigo is a Japanese ceramist who lives and works in Paris. After studying design in Japan, Motoko moved to Paris where she trained in different pottery techniques with a Japanese ceramist. In her small workshop under the roof, the ceramist shapes utilitarian pieces on the wheel, mainly in stoneware and half-porcelain, which she then reworks by hand to thin the shape and optimize the curvature. Her lightest possible volumes highlight a great harmony and variety of colors, which she creates herself by manufacturing her enamels.
