Yumiko Iihoshi makes two series of porcelain works.
In ‘Hand Works’ she uses the potter’s wheel herself.
In ‘Products’ she asks pottery makers from each region of Japan to follow faithfully her precise instructions for the shape and colour of the pieces. She attaches a great importance in creating her own mould and glaze recipe. The result is a product that retains the essence of craft work.
Her pieces are available internationally.
Yumiko graduated from Kyoto Saga University of Arts, ceramic art course.
