Yoko Kawada
Designer/maker of homeware products including tile art of SQUARE+ROUND Basin, MONO Tray and collaboration work of Kintsugi with international artists and artisan.
I studied interior design in London late 1990 and established solo trade business as Yoko Kawada in 2016.
My design is influenced by multiple countries I have been in the past searching materials and creative process both in traditional way and with technology.
I started to practice Kintsugi a few years ago in Japan to incorporate its unique nature of the Japanese traditional craft into my design.
I run Kintsugi workshops to share the joy of learning this Japanese craft full of surprises and contradictions.


Chizuru is a Japanese visual artist living in Sydney since 2016 and graduated from Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts at TAFE in 2018.
"I have been involved in creativity almost half of my life mainly from pottery and painting on ceramics, and I received several ceramic art and printmaking awards in Japan.
Recently, I am painting and drawing based on Australian and Japanese culture.
My passion is to introduce Japanese art, craft and culture through the workshops."

Yoko was a fantastic teacher and we all thoroughly enjoyed her Kintsugi mending workshop. Yoko was very patient and walked us through each step of the Kintsugi process and provided interesting historical facts about the art. All materials were very high quality and Yoko was incredibly thoughtful to provide all necessary materials including gloves and masks. We were also very satisfied with the option to have the workshop at our own venue of choice. Thank you so much Yoko for an amazing experience and we are very excited to see our final product!
