Kayo O'Young is a self-taught artist, who lives in Ontario. He is recognized as one of Canada’s finest porcelain potters. In the related industry, he is known as “a potters’ potter” and he serves as both teacher and inspiration to numerous potters. Originally born in China, Kayo immigrated to Canada in 1965. His parents and grand parents were potters and he began potting at the age of 5.
Each of Kayo’s pieces are one-of-a-kind originals. He pays attention to every single detail, leaving no area of the work untouched by his genius. His glaze recipes are his own and are non-toxic. Each piece is hand-signed by the artist.

Kayo’s work is the focus of numerous exhibits in prestigious museums, galleries, private and public collections worldwide. He has hosted many workshops including seminars at the Ontario College of Art, Mohawk College of Applied Arts and the University of Waterloo. His work has also been the subject of two films: The Hand and the Spirit (TV Ontario, 1992) and Playing with the Fire (CBC Arts and Entertainment, 1993).
