Yoko Sekino-Bové was born in Osaka, Japan. She worked as a graphic designer before her passion for ceramic art took her onto a new path.
After receiving an MFA in Ceramics from the University of Oklahoma, Yoko moved to Washington, Pennsylvania, and started working from her home studio. Her porcelain work has been exhibited in galleries, museums, and most importantly, many private homes (mainly kitchens).
Yoko approaches ceramic art as a way to share stories, by using function as a design element to enhance the experience. Her ambition in art is for her work to serve people in many different ways, to provide comfort, joy, and excitement.
