Yuka Uchida, Brooklyn NY
Yuka Uchida is a Japanese designer who studied architectural design and worked as an interior designer. After going abroad to the United States, she studied fine arts including print making.
Yuka became interested in ceramics because it enables her to mix her interests in craft and product design. Her style tends toward minimalist with simple colors. She focuses particularly on porcelain, taking advantage the rich white warmth that exudes from the material.
"I deeply enjoy working with porcelain. I find it relaxing and refreshing. Porcelain is an organic material that has been used for jewelry since ancient times. When working with it, I want to put another life into this ordinary but beautiful material. With its natural texture and its flexibility, it allows me to focus on shape more than color. I want to bring beauty to the porcelain, and also a modern style to this ancient material.
"Working with porcelain gives me the opportunity to create by my own vision which I am very happy to share through my work."
