Profile

Yasmin Kathrada was born in Gloucester, UK. An artist of Islamic origins, YK uses traditional Islamic materials, methods and techniques dating back thousands of years. Her work is inspired by the spiritualism of the Islamic faith as expressed through geometric precision and symmetry. YK specialises in glass, ceramics and woodwork within the context of architectural interior design. Her work is both decorative and functional in design. Her aim is to bring beauty into a space in order to create a peaceful, harmonious and tranquil environment. YK’s work masterfully combines both the traditional aspects of Islamic art and those associated with modern living in the 21st Century.
