About the Artist:


Jimu Kobayashi is an industrial designer and ceramic artist with Japanese and Taiwanese roots, born and raised in Germany. He completed his studies at the Folkwang University of the Arts in 2020.

In addition to his own creations, Jimu worked as a product designer at onomao from 2021 to 2023 before dedicating himself to the deeper study of ceramic art in Japan.


During his studies, he attempted to understand the processes of the material from raw state to finished object from both a craft and industrial perspective.


Influenced by his grandparents in Japan, he embarked on a journey to traditional pottery art many years ago. The making of ceramics and the endless pursuit of perfection in this art captivate his interest, and he sees it as a path he will likely follow for his lifetime.


Transforming traditional Japanese craftsmanship into everyday art with a modern perspective is one of his goal.
