Discover NERIKOMI ceramics, inspired by traditional Japanese art
Yuko Kuramatsu creates ceramic pieces for tableware in small series and unique pieces, bowls, cups or plates.
Her creations are entirely handmade according to the traditional Japanese NERIKOMI technique, also called NERIAGE or mixed earthenware, i.e. by assembling different colored earthenware that she dyes herself in the mass according to a well-defined creation process.
This technique of assembling earths is complex to develop for each piece in order to create the geometric shapes and designs that she wishes to compose. Through her various creations, Yuko Karamatsu brings back to life the traditional Japanese motifs, often forgotten and rich in symbolism.
Yuko Kuramatsu, a ceramist between two cultures, Japanese and French
Yuko Kuramatsu, Japanese ceramist and Poitiers by adoption, takes us on a journey through her culture which she revisits with great poetry and extreme delicacy.
Each piece is made in several stages, by hand, sanded and not glazed to keep all its mattness, a velvety touch and its transparency that characterizes this porcelain that can be admired from either side.
