Welcome to Jingdezhen

Yi Design is a cutting edge design company that creates products using new found technologies that are eco friendly. During the past year, Yi Design has been experimenting with sustainable materials and methods that use less of the earth’s resources.  Our mission is to recycle,reuse and reinvent the existing materials while continuing to create beautiful products. 

3D Design

Rendering with the computer and visualizing the product through digital imaging cuts down the time and materials spent on prototyping an actual ceramic object.  This year we collaborated with Xuberance to make cups and mugs, salt and pepper shakers and vases in these new methods. 

The Left Overs

Using left over parts from other projects, we are making lights for home and public spaces. These lovely lamps and ceiling lights were displayed at the LondonCraft Week 2016.


We use found/discarded porcelain in trash piles around Jingdezhen and old tiles from rooftops around China. The pieces serve as aggregate for our terrazzo products.  This year we have designed the Coasters, Tea Trays, Mountain Brush Holders and The Table,finding a way to use less newly mined materials and reinventing what we otherwise would think is useless junk.

Rammed Earth

Our idea is that the products would decompose and “return” to nature. They can be reused again to make other products.  And if a piece is broken or no longer useful, there is no cost to the earth’s resources - we can use the same material and build something else.  Rammed earth material consists of recycled ceramic as aggregate, with natural found materials that do not pollute the earth.
