It’s great to be working in an industry I’m passionate about. I believe I always bring a ‘can do’ attitude to everything I do and part of that was learning to multi-task while at Staffordshire University, balancing work, study and parenting.

Yuka Kikumoto 

From: Japan
Studied: Ceramic Design
Career: Ceramic Designer

I got the Future Light award last October, which gave me the opportunity to display my work with others from all over the world. In the past three years I’ve taken part in 18 exhibitions in the UK, Turkey and Japan. I’ve sold many items at the exhibitions and I’ve also had the chance to sell in galleries and shops. I produced bespoke plates and bowls for Japanese restaurant Jidori, in London, who are selling my works and using original pieces for customers.
