Alyson Iwamoto is a ceramic artist who goes to great lengths to bring her ideas to life by inventing new processes. She has a formal education in ceramics, so she has the ability to mix her own clay bodies and formulate glazes to attain a desired look. Ceramics are deeply rooted in Japanese culture and she feels connected to that tradition as a Sansei, third generation Japanese-American, and carries it on in her own spirit. Alyson creates fine porcelain jewelry inspired by rock gardens in Japan and the philosophy of wabi-sabi. In each piece she makes, she sees infinite possibility in a stamped-sized square of space.
