ABOUT

I create artwork that helps minimalists transform their interiors
into spaces that are calm, inviting
and beautiful.

I have always been in love with the simple, the essential, the understated. But it has taken me years to find the perfect approach to harnessing simplicity without losing a sense of beauty.

Let me explain.

Back when I worked as an interior designer I would create minimalist spaces. These spaces were “nice”, but  they always seemed a bit blah. I wanted to create environments that felt calm and inviting, but instead my spaces felt lifeless. I knew that there was something missing – I just couldn’t put a finger on what that something was. 

Then I met clay. And, it all became clear.

Hi! I'm Yasha. 
I am a ceramic artist and sculptor.

I realized that what my interiors were missing was a sense of poetry.
Poetry that comes from the irregular, the natural, the imperfect, and the handmade. Poetry that makes us feel relaxed, welcomed and inspired. 

No matter what I did, without this one element my spaces always lacked character.

Once I understood what the problem was, I decided to focus on figuring out how to capture this sense of magic. I worked for years honing my craft. I explored the many ways of capturing the simple without washing away the beautiful. 

Eventually (and fortunately) I figured it out. My work is always evolving, but I do feel that my pieces now embody a sense of poetry that truly transform the spaces that they're in.

ORIGIN

I'm half Turkish, half American.  And, I was born in Istanbul. But, that's only the beginning of the story.

I have lived on three continents and in ten different cities over the past two decades.  Not to pick favorites, but New York, Barcelona and Dublin have all left lasting impressions on me.

INSPIRATION

My environment deeply influences the work that I create. Currently, I am inspired by the raw beauty of the Irish Sea, the sun bleached cliffs of the Mediterranean coast, and the beautiful ancient pots from these historic lands.

SANCTUARY

Having to constantly adapt to a new life in a new place has made me appreciate the power of a home that feels like a sanctuary. It's a gift to have a place that you want to come home to. I've enjoyed creating my own refuge across the globe and I'd love to help you do the same.
