Wakana Motoko was born in Tokyo in 1962 and graduated from Saitama University in 1985. In the early 1990's Motoko attended Takasaki College of Art and, after graduating from there in 1993 trained and worked in Japan until coming to England in 1999. In Japan she spent three years at the Utatsuyama Craft Workshop in Kanazawa, followed by a similar period at the Oshigahara Workshop and exhibited widely.

She came to England in 1999 and spent time working with Clive Bowen, Mary Wondrausch and John Bedding before settling down in St. Ives, Cornwall. After returning to Japan in late 2005, Motoko has continued to work and the small teabowl here was made there during the summer of 2008.
