ARTISAN BIOGRAPHY

Mayumi Yamashita was born and grew up in the smallest coastal area (Kagawa) of South-West Japan. After graduating with first class honours in Contemporary Crafts course at Falmouth University (UK) in 2012, she then returned home to set up her own ceramist studio.

Mayumi is passionate about colours and combinations. The colours and texture of her pottery are deeply inspired by Japanese woodblock print (ukiyoe), naturally dyed fabrics and wools. In addition to the influence of her Japanese background, one can also feel the impact of her UK education, which allows her to create a fusion between ‘contemporary’ and ‘traditional’ ceramics.

She constantly seeks a balanced way to bring all these elements together in her work, designs, technique, materials and concepts, hoping that her pottery would fit harmoniously into any lifestyle.
