Shohei Ono

Born in Aichi prefecture in 1985 and currently making pottery in Kōchi Prefecture, Japan. Shohei was raised watching his father, the potter Teppei Ono, making things with his hands.


Shohei started off in pottery making his own pots using clay that he dug from the mountains, and glazes that he made from scratch. He makes pieces that take into consideration what the person holding the object will feel when they touch the piece.
