Ceramics and home accessories designer Reiko Kaneko certainly has merged beautiful ceramics with a beautiful life. Born in Britain, Reiko spent her childhood in Japan, and continuously draws on influences from both British and Japanese cultures, blending the two in the pieces she creates.

Having studied Arts and Design at Central St. Martin's College, Reiko specializes in ceramic design and supplies bone china design. In 2007, she established a design studio in London’s East End, where she creates the most exquisite home accessories and fine bone china tableware -- gorgeous pieces like her renowned boat, which was first launched at the famed Maison & Objet show in Paris earlier this year.

{top five favourite pieces of advice for young artists & designers:}

1. I find the more I learn, I realise how little I know, so my first piece of advice is to always keep trying, experimenting, and learning.

YouTube and google are great senseis, or teachers -- don’t underestimate them!

3. Rome wasn't built in a day, so be faithful to your dreams.

4.
Live every day as if it's your last, but also live as if you'll be alive for a very long time.

5. Above all, enjoy everything you do -- a lot!
