The Journey

design by
Hun-Chung Lee

South Korea, 2016


“The design of this carpet derives from works I had originally created in ceramic tile. I wanted to express through the medium of carpet the natural feeling of glaze melting in the kiln. I was also interested in incorporating references to traditional Korean motifs and craftsmanship into my design. The red butterfly pattern is used frequently in Najeon, one the specialized mother-of-pearl craft techniques used in Korean design.”


Pile composition: wool and silk Technique: hand woven Origin: Nepal Size. 400x250 cm


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.
