Lives and Works: Korea

 

LEE Ka-jin earned a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in ceramics in Seoul National University, and is one of the most promising, up-and-coming craft artist in Korea dedicated to making contemporary celadon wares (cheong-ja). Lee has actively showcased her work at home and abroad, namely in Collect craft fair in London and the “Korea NOW” in Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris. LEE applies a special glaze made in her own combinations on her droplet-shaped porcelains to add a rich texture and goes through a meticulous ceramic firing process. The thick glaze coating illustrates the extreme “matter-ness” of the porcelain. LEE makes sturdy porcelains with a lucid, radiant color with higher firing temperature and viscosity compared to those of traditional Go-ryo celadons. LEE seeks to reinterpret classical celadons into modern disciplines not through variations in the appearance or functionality but through technological innovations and sentiments of today.
