This event has ended.

Teppei Yamashita was born and raised in Imari, Japan, world renowned for its ceramics and porcelains. In 2006, he graduated from Arita College of Ceramics, an outstanding institution of traditional Japanese porcelain and ceramic education. Teppei specialized in reinterpretation of traditional wares for everyday usage.

After participating in two group exhibitions in Japan, Teppei moved to Istanbul, Turkey and designed for VitrA Ceramics Art Workshop (VitrA Seramik Atölyesi) while establishing his personal home studio.

Teppei held his first solo exhibition in Istanbul, Turkey, titled “Flower Birds”. This exhibition was selected as the primary ceramic art exhibit of “Japan Year 2010 in Turkey”, a national endeavor with the goal to introduce beauty of Japan to enhance friendship and support future cooperation with Turkey.

In his work, Teppei seizes the connection between the traditional and the modern. He interprets the traditional motifs of both his home country of Japan, and his residence country of Turkey, with original figures and contemporary, innovative forms.

Teppei continues to live in Istanbul and creates his art at his home studio.
