Born in 1984, Tetsuya Ozawa lives and works in the ancient ceramic town of Tokoname, Japan. After studying Fine Arts at Nagoya University, he apprenticed under ceramic master, Yoshikawa Masamichi.

In his work, there is a nod to classicism, restraint and refinement, but with the appearance of lightness and a modern fresh brilliance wrought into his surfaces, which is achieved by his special glazing technique. Called "Kofuki", it's a process whereby white soil is dusted over local Tokoname clay forms after firing, and the palette is restricted to the clay colours of the the region - rust, yellow, white & black.
