Lee creates modern day pieces using techniques and colors dating back to the Joseon Dynasty. Lee attended Hong-ik University in Seoul from 1986-1991 with a BFA in ceramic sculpture. He continued his education throughout San Francisco and Korea, and getting a PH.D in architecture from Kyung-Won University in Gyeonggi-do, South Korea.

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. In Lee’s hands, the solid ceramics — as with other materials — take on a soft, almost cloud-like character.

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.

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.

Lee Hun Chung is represented by Seomi Gallery that already took this designs to Design Miami. Besides Korea, the artist already exhibited worldwide in the most renowned design shows.

He presents the collection of works as a collaboration with and homage to nature. His delicate colors and simple forms are intended to suggest the natural beauty of the Korean landscape throughout the changing seasons. A recurring theme in this new collection is harmony — the harmony of colors and the harmony of seemingly disparate materials in his benches and storage units. In these pieces Lee coaxes concrete and steel into shapes that are softer than seems possible from such traditionally hard materials. His stools, chairs, and tables are hand-sculpted from ceramic and concrete then painted with layers of glaze to create a multihued surface embellishment, giving the heavy material an ethereal luster.
