About Lee Hun Chung

Lee Hun Chung thinks of his ceramics as “three-dimensional landscape painting,” imbued with the colors of his native Korea. The artist hand forms clay into chairs, tables, and decorative objects, which he fires in a hand-made kiln using a celadon glaze first developed in the 15th century. The results of the glazing process are unpredictable, a collaboration between artist and nature that creates a complex patina of painterly layers of glaze, as tactile as they are pleasing to the eye. With his expert touch, earthy materials like clay, cement, and wood become light, soft, and ethereal. Having worked in pottery, sculpture, installation, and furniture, Lee continually pushes the boundaries of his medium.

South Korean, b. 1967, Seoul, South Korea
