ZIYO was founded by Yi Lin, a Taiwanese contemporary artist, based in Crystal Palace in South-East London. Each individual ceramic piece by ZIYO is uniquely hand-made by Yi Lin using local clay. Showing the natural colour of the clay gives his work a warm earthy feeling with contrasting elements of thicker smooth glaze that have been added to create a pleasant surface to touch. The inside of the teapot is unglazed which allows the clay to absorb the tea flavours through time, the tea will be richer in flavour the longer you use the teapot. ZIYO is aiming to create something new and modern inspired by ancient oriental philosophy and using traditional Yixing hand-building techniques to create their ceramics.
This one of a kind modern Chinese/Japanese teacup is made using traditional Yixing hand-building techniques in local clay.
