Makiko is, originally from Japan, now based in North Yorkshire, working from her little pottery studio in her garden.
Makiko makes functional stoneware, mostly hand-thrown on wheel. Her passion for tableware is strongly in?uenced by the food culture from her background. They are made to be used and loved in daily life.
One of her collections rakugaki presents unique surface designs within blue and white combination. As rakugaki means doodling in Japanese, Makiko expresses spontaneous designs using slip & sgraf?to technique, which she cut newspaper one by one to create stencil effect. Inspiration of her designs often comes from nature and creatures in her North Yorkshire life.
