Studio Visit: Jill Aiko Yee

February 10, 2014

 

Have you come across Jill Aiko Yee's beautiful things yet? I met her at the Unique LA Holiday show this past year, although I have been eyeing her work for some time now. Jill is a fashion designer here in Los Angeles and fellow Otis alum. She cuts, sews, dyes all of her work in small batches.

She started her studio a couple years ago after a job with a local fashion designer came to end and has been making ever since. Connecting with her is both refreshing and inspiring. Her work shares similar color stories with my ceramic pieces and may be inspired by the same sunsets. 

Her pieces, are full of light, life, and color. My favorites are her floating ombre dyed silks and her everyday creative work wear. Take a peek:

 

I could wear this piece everyday in the studio!

I've been working hard on my native garden around the studio. However, it's been a labor of love! The salvia and butterfly bush with my grandmother's roses are amazing... I love the blend of classic and wild flowers in the Multiverse vase. You can take home this vase here.

Some of my favorite pieces all together I found from a previous shoot. 😻 Since then, that Supernova Platter has found a home, but I do still have another style. Take home one here. What I love about those pieces are they were completely done intuitively, encompassing a macro and micro lens on natural phenomena. It was the precursor to the Multiverse style that has evolved this year and one of the first where I really started using the ceramic surface as a canvas.
