Mizuyo Yamashita Wild Clay Vessel 2


Handmade in UK.

Dimensions: W 13cm x H 15cm

Materials: Wild Clay 

Method: hand-thrown vase, made on the potters wheel



This eloquent vessel was hand crafted by Mizuyo Yamashita; it’s voluminous form and calming colour palette exude tranquillity. Adorned with raised inclusions in white and black, delicate washes fall over its broad shoulders, grounding the vessel in stillness.

Yamashita’s unique process starts with hand coiling a mixture of different raw materials and wild clays. After firing, there is a masterful reapplication of the same materials, resulting in a subtle tactile surface synonymous with Mizuyo Yamashita’s work.


About the Artist

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 different 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.
