Our Fine Choices exhibition provides us with an opportunity to take each of you on a tour of the state of our collections each year. We also use this as an opportunity to feature an artist or tradition. This year Young Jae Lee’s work offers you an invitation to beauty.
Young Jae Lee graduated from Seoul’s Academy of Fine Arts in 1972, and moved to Germany to complete a number of internships and further her studies in ceramic arts. Since 1987, she has served as Director of Keramische Werkstatt Margaretenhöhe GmbH in Essen, Germany. In this studio, Lee creates works for her large-scale ceramic installations and independent exhibitions while simultaneously presiding over several apprentices who are responsible for manufacturing tableware sets. In recognition of her ceramic career, Lee was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wroclaw, Poland, in 2016. Her works are featured in numerous international public collections, including the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Munich’s Pinakothek de Moderne.
