Intentional vessels for slow, storied living.
Works that are made with artistry, presence and thoughtfulness; a philosophy that permeates the spaces they occupy for mindful living.
Inspired by its potential as a universally accessible and versatile material, LYT transforms clay through a ‘feel-first’ approach. For intentional vessels that embody form and function that’s beautifully character – an honouring of inherent imperfections as art. A self-taught ceramicist, founder Lili Tayefi marries a detailed eye for aesthetics, a background in fine arts and a masters in architecture and technology. Balancing these oppositional qualities of artistic expression and technical precision and innovation with ease creates works of provenance.
From functional homeware to sculptural collectables, each carries a novel story of the day spun. Lili is a journeying free-spirit and shows up to the wheel in lightness - her preferred state to create. She believes that true artistry originates from a space within - one that must be carved out. An extension of the maker, the clean and minimal lines of LYT’s works carry airiness and aspiration into your space. Let the enlivening origin of each piece inspire moments of joy, a slower way of being, and reconnection to curiosity.
