yamamoto junko


Junko Yamamoto was born in Japan in 1973. Since her mother was a craftsman at home, Junko grew up watching her mother’s sewing. Intrigued, the artist selected a few pieces in different colours and began creating everyday objects and household items out of felt. Her favourite themes include food, kitchen gadgets, hardware and many more. Her oeuvre fascinates us with its brilliantly simplified form, unrestricted colour choice, audacious two-dimensional design, and process requiring subtle sense of touch. Junko Yamamoto’s works are represented internationally and can be found in countless public and private collections.
