Yumiko wants the cups to feel lovely in the hands, be beautiful to look at and be highly functional. The name ‘Un Jour’ means ‘one day’ in French. This is because she wanted to make a unique cup for everyday use – for all the different times of day and for every usage and mood. These cups are made to be used, easily washed, and used again.
The artist makes pieces that are infused with nostalgia; inspiring people to reflect and reminisce about time gone by. The handmade line is not overly stylised or crafted. The product line has a unique touch that stands apart from basic line. She wants to create a range of pieces that are on the boundary between handmade and conventional goods.
