I’ve been experimenting: firing at different temperatures...I’ve been able to get different colors, details, and textures from these trials. That’s why I named [my series] after a river — there are so many different colors both inside and outside, reflected from nature and the sky. — Kwangho Lee
Kwangho Lee lives and works in Seoul, South Korea, having received his bachelor of arts in 2007 from Hongik University, majoring in Metal Art and Design.
Making things by hand was a great joy of his as a child, reminding him of his grandfather, a farmer himself, who constantly made daily household goods from natural materials found nearby. Lee appreciated the way he looked at everyday objects and thus began to approach things in similar ways; to give new meaning and function to the most ordinary.Today, as Lee continuously presents new series of works, he develops his practice by discovering moments of materials joining another.
