Yo Thom

Yo Thom was born in Tokyo, Japan in 1973. After a degree in English Language in Japan, she came to the UK to study Three Dimensional Design at Kent Institute of Art and Design in 1996. After one year introductory course, she chose BA Ceramics course and obtained Masters Degree in 2000.

For 2 years Yo trained as an apprentice for studio potter, Lisa Hammond at Maze Hill Pottery. Yo began making her own work using Shino-type glaze and Celadon, and established a workshop in Creekside, London in 2004.
"My work is thrown and hand-built functional stoneware with influence from both UK and Japan, but mostly from Japanese food culture. I try to create tableware, which will become clothes for food as Rosanjin once said. It performs as a background for the food you serve as yet retains strong personality. The harmony of my tableware and food is the most important thing to consider when I make. The new Ai (Indigo) range was developed from my love of Japanese Indigo fabric and its traditional patterns. The wood-fired pieces are called Boku range, which means simple and 'as it is'. I love the power of wood and fire, which create endless palette of colours beyond my control. I keep the design as simple as possible to collaborate with fire."
