Evy Yonathan studied ceramics independently from Lim Keng Sien. She actually gained her formal education majoring in tourism and travel business. Although she studied ceramics informally for one year from 1998 to 1999, Evy shows strong motivation and interest in ceramics just like she describes it: ‘Clay is my friend’. From 2001 until the present time, she has participated in several collaborative exhibitions; one of them is an exhibition she had with her friends in the group called Tanah Liat 9.
Evy’s artworks are from her personal stories and responses to the surrounding issues. Some of them show abstraction in the form of human figures especially female figures. Evy works using different techniques and she uses natural ‘earthy’ colours. She sometimes combines ceramics with other media, such as one of her artworks shown in this exhibition where she used canvas and ceramics. Her artworks can be categorized as figurative ceramics.
