Ceramicist Haejin Lee creates sculptures that seem to unravel before your eyes, ceramic forms that open and splay outwards to make vessels unusable and faces far more interesting. Utilizing minimal color Lee instead focuses on her shapeshifting creations, often incorporating human elements like eyes and mouths that sprout from the banded chaos.
The South Korean artist worked in her native country for 10 years before moving to Vancouver, BC two years ago. She is a graduate of Hong-Ik University in Korea, where she received a masters degree in ceramic art. Her studio in Vancouver focuses on functional tableware designs that are modern and simple, balancing her more abstractly formed works. You can see more of her tableware line and other works from her Canadian studio on her Instagram. (via Cross Connect Magazine)
