TENDER VESSELS

Joey Yu x Unique Board

A series of 3D printed hand-drawn vases by London-based artist Joey Yu (previously featured here). Created using 3D powder printing and a 2D stretched shape, Yu offers an updated take on traditional Chinese ceramics. As she describes the project:

“The designs I kept pretty traditional, with subtle modern nods in each such as a car, a girl on her phone for example. They all capture a slow, tender moment, stretching it out forever in time. I like to think of it as sculpture poetry.”

“Often, art reflects the artist, and the work of Joey Yu is a bold example of this. Lively, playful and brilliantly inventive, her work mirrors her own experimental nature. Laughing off creative limitations, the illustrator/animator/curator has dived into the worlds of fashion design, 3D, and modeling – and has just been featured in Gucci’s new #25WaysToGucci– all while building an ever-impressive portfolio of her signature illustrations.

The way Joey works encapsulates a lot of what is inspiring about this generation of artists: fluid, open and globally collaborative, creatives from every industry are melting their practices into one another, and individuals like Joey are at the forefront of this experimental wave.

The way our professional work intersects with the personal is also a defining feature of this creative generation: with platforms like Instagram providing a space for artists to curate their own blend of life and work for the world to see, this constantly evolving feed gives us an intimate view of the interplay between inspiration and idea. We spoke to Joey about her personal and creative processes, before jumping into a photographic series that takes lead from her love of merging art and fashion, giving a playful reflection of artist and art, side-by-side.”
