Jonathan Yamakami

Jonathan Yamakami

Jonathan is a Japanese-Brazilian ceramist, based in Los Angeles. His work focuses on hand built and wheel thrown vessels, drawing from the raw form and textural abundance of sea creatures, botanical life, and geological formations. Figures from his childhood in Brazil, occasionally intertwined with mythical characters, are also present in his pieces.

While Jonathan’s background in design informs his search for textures and forms, he prefers to embrace a more intuitive process of making and values the unexpected. This current body of work began in 2017, while living in Oregon.
