Mizuyo Yamashita mainly makes tableware and home decor objects. She works mostly on the potter's wheel and uses surface decorating techniques that stem from Japanese and Korean traditions such as shinogi, mishima and kohiki.
"The inspirations for my work come from a wide range of archeological artefacts, everyday objects, and forms in nature. I also generate ideas from materials and processes in ceramics and other crafts. In my work I explore the elegant beauty of modern living while maintaining the functionality of everyday objects." Mizuyo Yamashita
Her work is widely collected and has been included in the Tate Edit London and in the Jeffreys Museum Hackney.
