If you don't specify an owner, the table is owned by who ever who are connected to the database as.

Type "show user" to see who you are connected as (if in sqlplus).

Each user has a default tablespace assigned when the user is created.  If no tablespace is specified in the create table statement, that tablespace is used.

select default_tablespace from dba_users where username = 'YOUR_OWNER_NAME';

Before creating a table, you would have connected to the database using a database username right. That would be the username in which you have created the table.

Further to my above, if not using sqlplus (TOAD or some other tool) you can also do this to see your connected username:

SELECT sys_context('USERENV', 'SESSION_USER') FROM DUAL;
