Yas-Ming Ceramics is a collaboration between Yasmin Dilekkaya and Ming Wai Sun. The pair have been working together since they graduated. All work is designed by Ming Wai and Yasmin.
The pair studied Applied Arts at the University for the Creative Arts in Rochester. The work stemmed from mixing their individual practices in an attempt to make products that would sell in a University fundraiser. Since then the work has evolved and developed with new product lines added.
The main process used is slip casting, but press moulding and hand building techniques are also used. Moulds are made and then used to slip cast the animals, cups, bowls and dishes. The animals are then carefully joined to the cups by hand.
All Yas-Ming Ceramics are made in Britain, in their Kent studio and in a small factory in Stoke-on-Trent.
