Yusuke Yamamoto

Born: 1979
Place of Birth: Kanagawa, Japan

Yusuke Yamamoto was born in Kanagawa, Japan in 1979 and now lives and works in North Wales. He trained in silversmithing at the renowned Musashino Art University, Tokyo. In 2011 Yusuke met Anna Gordon (currently the Head of the Silversmithing and Jewellery at Glasgow School of Art) and she invited him to take up an academic research position at GSA in 2012. In 2011 he visited Musashino Art University in Tokyo which has a world class reputation for metalwork, headed by Professor Hiroshi Suzuki.

Yusuke shapes metal by hammer raising and chasing techniques and draws inspiration from the natural world. With each stroke of the hammer, he tries to evoke an expression, atmosphere and emotion.

Public Collections include:
The Goldsmiths’ Company, London; The Clothworkers’ Company, London; The New College, Oxford

Yusuke’s work featured in the exhibition A Japanese Design in August 2020. Yusuke presents new work as part of Malcolm Appleby & Friends, August 2021.
