Born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil to South Korean parents, Re Jin Lee now makes her ceramic pieces by hand in upstate New York, using a unique assembly of individually rolled out clay slabs and coils created by a 'hand and clay' collaboration inspired by the contemplative process of ceramics, and a belief in simplicity.
"It’s fitting that pottery dates back to the beginning of our existence," she says. "Though I’m creating these large complicated sculptural pieces, I aspire to re-create the most basic, simplest, necessarily functional piece from the first time pottery was created." This sculpture can be implemented as a candlestick holder, tying back to the simplicity of functional art.
All works are made by hand, unique and one of a kind.
Minor flaking may occur due to the nature of the material.
