Miyu Kurihara is a Japanese artist who makes hand-painted ceramics. Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Miyu currently lives and works in London.

She draws upon her heritage when creating her ceramics pieces; inspired by both Japanese kimono design and traditional Asian ceramics. All pieces are made by hand and individually drawn with intricate detail.

Having learned brush techniques and textile design in Japan at Tama Art University, and London at the Chelsea College of Arts, she incorporated these skills into her work and uses traditional blue and white porcelain craftsmanship that originate in China and Japan.
