I like ceramics a lot probably because I from Taiwan, surrounding beautiful handmade ceramics, I also love Japan design and culture too, that how I find Mayumi Yamashita design on Etsy, each design have their own personality and the nature color, warm texture, make me want to collect them all.
So today we are going to hear story of her design career and behind the scene of her brand, hope you enjoy!
Q: What’s story behind your brand?
I studied ceramics in the UK and I would mainly make sculpture which represents ‘humanity’, but since being back to Japan I was having a real hard time to find the way to sell my sculpture.
So I then decided to start making functional ware as well as sculpture to make a living and I’ve taught myself all from scratch.
My career as a potter started rather unexpected way but I’m fully committed to it now and my pottery business seems finally make a start slowly but surely.
