Artist Creates Ceramic Sculptures That Unwind Before Your Eyes

Ceramicist Haejin Lee designs sculptures that seem to unwind before your eyes, ceramic structures that free and splay outwards to make faces far more impressive. Using minimal color Lee instead concentrates on her shapeshifting sculptures, often including human elements like eyes and mouths that grow from the chaos.

Haejin Lee worked in South Korea for ten years before moving to Vancouver, BC two years ago. She is a graduated from Hong-Ik University in Korea, where she received a masters degree in ceramic art. Her studio in Vancouver concentrates on practical tableware designs that are contemporary and simple, balancing her more abstractly designed works.
