Today we love: stoneware jars by Mayumi Yamashita

The Japanese ceramicist studied at Falmouth University but has returned home to set up her studio specialising in elegantly informal and eminently useable pieces

Incised lidded jars, £45 at Jardins Florian

Mayumi Yamashita is a ceramicist who's finding a growing following among those who want ceramics that are idiosyncratic but up to the rigours of daily use. She makes many of her pieces for kitchen/dining from stoneware, giving us organic shapes and beautiful muted colours.
