AND O DESIGN
Yumi Ando is a Melbourne ceramic artist who creates hand made jewellery, homewares and interior accessories. The and O designs have grown from her Japanese background and appreciation of the natural world, fused with the timelessness of vintage objects and iconic symbolism.
Her works begin as technical illustrations, sketches and hand cut templates which are then produced in her home studio. Every product is lovingly hand built from high quality porcelain, stoneware and finished with variety of glazes. The delicate decoration of her works is achieved through etched inlays, hand painting, piercing and printing. Small, delicate and individual, her pieces are destined to be held and appreciated for their quality, personality and individualism.
