Mizuyo Yamashita is a London based ceramicist.

Mizuyo is strongly inspired by the everyday use of lifestyle products, creating hand thrown small objects on the potter’s wheel, blending three types of clay and glazed in natural muted tones.

Originally inspired by English and French stoneware jars, Mizuyo began creating their miniature forms, gradually changing their designs and surface decoration.

Using surfacing treatment techniques, popular in Japan, such as shinogi, mishima and kohiki, with the aim of creating pieces to match modern European interior design. Mizuyo's forms display an interesting combination of the artists inspirations and influences. .
