Hun Chung Lee
Through exceptionally skilled handwork and applied layers of patina, Hun-Chung Lee transforms materials often considered cold — such as concrete and steel — into architecturally graceful, soft-edged sculptural furniture. In his magnificent, unique ceramic stools and objects, the seemingly chaotic pattern of glaze belies Lee’s careful, painterly control of palette that emerges upon closer observation. His work has been exhibited widely throughout Korea and in the United States.
“The inspiration for this design was taken from a previous piece I created called ‘Mandala’ (…)n this form of painting, the significance lies in the process of creating the piece, and less value is placed on the final result.”
