Born in Japan, Mizuyo first developed her interest in ceramics through collecting whilst working as an interior decorator. After moving to London in 2000, she began to practice pottery and her interest in it grew, leading to her gaining a degree in Ceramics from the University of Westminster. She draws from a wide range of inspirations across different cultural ceramics practices – integrating elements from English, Japanese, Roman, Korean, and other traditions rather than choosing one purist approach to the creation of her ceramics. Her ceramics incorporate a blend of clays and typically use glazes in natural muted tones.
Mizuyo has exhibited across the UK, with shows in the Flow Gallery, Tate Edit at the Tate Modern, Maud & Mabel, and more. Her work has also been shown more widely, such as in New Zealand and Germany.
