Heily Lai graduated from Warwick University with a Bachelor of Electronic Engineering in 2011. Following that, she specialised in organising exhibitions and events. She is going to complete her Master of Art in Fine Arts at CUHK in 2018.
Over the past ten years, she has dedicated her work to ceramics, with a focus on people and art. She believes that through the sense of touch, ceramics can evoke memories and emotions; through shape and texture, you are able to connect with the artist and experience the journey of the ceramic's creation.
