Miyu Kurihara is a Japanese artist who makes hand-painted ceramics. Miyu draws upon her heritage when creating her ceramic pieces; inspired by both Japanese kimono design and traditional Asian ceramics. All pieces are made by hand and individually drawn with intricate detail. Having learned brush techniques and textile design in Japan and London, she incorporates these skills into her work and uses traditional blue and white porcelain processes that originate in China and Japan.
Miyu lives and works in London. She originally graduated from the Department of Product and Textile Design at Tama Art University, Tokyo before completing her Masters in Textile Design at Chelsea College of Arts, University of the Arts London in 2016.
Miyu presents her first solo exhibition with The Gallery, Miniature Masterpieces, in July 2021.
