For me, ceramics are the perfect combination of art and usefulness. I find joy in building functional forms by hand, creating with natural, recycled clay, and accepting the necessity of waiting.


My ceramics are made slowly, by hand, and may vary slightly in size, shape, and finish. Each piece is wheel-thrown, hand-turned, fired, glazed, and refired over several weeks.

Studio Tokidoki is an independent creative endeavor exploring art, design, and handmade ceramics.

Founded in 2020 in Tokyo by Ashley Ma, a designer and artist now based in San Francisco. Studio Tokidoki is a way for me to dip into art, function, time, and care — to explore meaning, patience, and new materials, while making things people can use easily.
