LAM Hei Yu, Jonathan (b. 1997) is a ceramicist, planter, makeup artist, bartender, and dog trainer. LAM's work focuses on the properties, behaviour, plasticity and history of ceramic. By synthesising various fields in ceramic, LAM explores the possibilities in firing and glazing techniques in his works.
LAM also works with Chinese art and sculpture. He wishes to explore the possibility of combining his wide range of interests into his work. LAM recently focuses on how plants and ceramic can interact with each other by studying, exploring and planting a broad range of plants.
Plant a hand-made plant for the plants is an ongoing project about compensating for the plants that were impulsively and recklessly bought online. The project will end when the plants are all gone.

By using his own textured glaze as a ceramic language, LAM Hei Yu, Jonathan creates a touchable Chinese landscape painting on a clay slab, which could not only be appreciated visually but also by touch.
