Yuriko Damiani

Data and contact details

Yuriko Damiani was born in Rome to a Japanese mother, a painter and teacher of porcelain decoration, and an Italian father, a profound connoisseur of the culture of the Rising Sun.

In 1999 she founded the DCube chain of furniture stores, which soon became a reference point for design in central northern Italy. Fundamental to his artistic path is the extraordinary work experience in 1997 in Tokyo in the studio of Architect Yoshinobu Ashihara contributing to the design of the Symphony Hall in Kanazawa (Japan). During this experience he understands the importance of the balances between "solids" and "voids" typical of Japanese art fundamental in his art. In 2009 he gives a lecture during the Symposium on Led Lighting at the Kyoto Faculty of Architecture.

The first appearance in the world of porcelain takes place in 2014 in Milan during the International XIII Convention Azzurra, where he receives the Honarable Mention for the work presented White Parrot Vase and later in 2016 with Colorful Butterfly Vase. Also in 2016, he published the book Fables of Porcelain published by Gangemi Editore.

In 2017, 2018 and 2021 she participated in the Italia Show Convention in San Giorgio Canavese, Turin, as a juror. In 2019, she decided to submit to the competition, ranking third with her work The Sun and the Moon.

In 2019, 2020, 2021 she creates, for La Pecora Nera Editore, the plaques for the awarding of the best restaurants in Rome, Milan and Turin.

In 2021 she realizes, on commission from Pallini SpA, the largest Porcelain Limoncello Bottle in the world, 68 cm high with a capacity of 5 lt.

In 2022 she creates, again for La Pecora Nera Editore, the Evoluzione 2022 Special Award on the occasion of the Evoluzione 2022 event dedicated to quality extra virgin olive oil.

She is the inventor of the "Under Gold and Ancient Japanese Gold" technique for which she is called upon to do demonstrations and seminars throughout Italy.
