My name is Kayo Benson. I'm a Vancouver based artist, working mainly in illustration and ceramics. I love the art of making and working on new designs.
At the moment I'm combining my design interests by using the ceramic surface as a canvas for my illustrations. All my pieces are hand drawn using a variety of media such as underglaze pencil, underglaze paints and inscribing tools. They are all one of a kind, singular pieces, not transferred images or prints.
My ceramic forms are all organically shaped, functional and decorative. I like natural imperfection.
My designs are currently inspired by nature and the wilderness. I like the idea of combining visual art and functional ceramics to evoke a feeling, such as comfort, a sense of tranquility and nostalgia etc into something we use in everyday life.
Thank you for reading my brief introduction. I aim to continue exploring my artistic interests and hope to share them more in the future!
