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.
"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 is created from individually rolled out slabs, carefully slow dried to a bone-dry state, then finished with multiple layers of brushed-on slip on the surface, and glazed inside. An intricate assembly of shape and form, it is a dynamic silhouette with a strong sense of character. This is functional art—to be used as a side table or pedestal.
All works are made by hand, unique and one of a kind.
Minor flaking may occur due to the nature of the material.
