Yasuo Terada is a Japanese ceramicist who has worked closely with Jason WASON. They first met in Japan in 2000. Subsequently Wason was invited to work with Terada at his studio in Seto, Japan's oldest centre of continuous ceramic history. Since then they have exhibited and worked together on many occasions, showing in galleries in Japan and London, and several locations in Cornwall. Together they have built a coal-fired kiln at the Leach Pottery.
In 2005, South West Arts and the Sasakawa Foundation Japan funded Wason to work for three months alongside Yasuo Terada at the Seihoji Ancient Kiln Park, as part of the EXPO international festival of Japan.
In 2017 Terada (together with Jason Wason) became LSG Withiel's first artist in residence.
