An elegant set of five ceramic pots from the acclaimed Japanese artist Miyuzo Yamashita.

Mizuyo Yamashita

Mizuyo’s work explores modern aesthetics combined with traditional, regional artifacts and their functionality. Her work draws upon various cultural influences. Clean and simple shapes are often twisted with hidden decorations, contrasting clays and glazes. Traditional Asian ceramic shapes are decorated with European motives and Japanese craft skills are applied to very simple traditional English pottery forms.”

“The  inspirations for my work come from a wide range of archeological artefact, everyday objects, the forms in the nature as well as materials and processes in ceramics and other crafts. Through my work I am trying to explore the beauty and materiality while obtaining the functions of everyday objects.”
