In Hwa Lee

In Hwa Lee is just as interested in the history of porcelain as she is fascinated by the fact that porcelain tableware has always been considered beautiful objects of daily use. This young ceramist skillfully uses translucence, a result of thin vessel walls, for her elegant creations. She also mixes her own clay and employs various techniques to obtain different degrees of translucence. By carefully removing layer by layer from the clay body while it is spinning on the potter’s wheel, she crafts vessels whose walls are sometimes a mere 1.5 mm thin. After glazing, the light shining through these extremely thin-walled vessels makes for intensely luminous colors. Despite their thin walls, her objects are perfectly usable, she comments. The sales prices range between 500 and 7,000 euros.
