Paper clay | 2022

The works in this series speak to emergence – the shapes reflect the potential one sees within seeds and buds. Each piece is formed from a pinched ball of paper clay to which very small coils are slowly added. As the piece grows, Yamakami searches for balance, a fragile moment when a work has finally found its footing.

Jonathan Yamakami is a Japanese-Brazilian ceramist based in Los Angeles. His practice focuses on hand-built sculptural vessels, drawing from the raw forms and textural abundance of sea creatures, botanical life, and geological formations. While Yamakami’s background in design informs his search for textures and forms, he embraces a more intuitive process of making and values the unexpected.
