Unravelling Ceramic Sculptures by Haejin Lee

Seoul-based artist Haejin Lee creates ceramic works that look as though they’ll unravel at any moment. Concentrating primarily on the human body, the sculptor fashions heads and feet that look mostly whole, but have ribbon-like strands rippling from the top of each piece. They appear in various stages of disarray, with facial features that have been twisted and multiplied, which adds another facet of eeriness to the already-surreal works.

Lee’s sculptures are beautifully crafted, yet have a sense of unease about them. The edges’ untangling appear as a symbol that things are going awry. For the human body, this could signify a loss of control or consciousness, like we’re not who we once were. Lee applies this same sentiment to time by producing a clock, conveying the feeling that the hours are gone before you realize it. These works stand as an eloquent reminder to cherish what we have in the present rather than constantly fretting about the unforeseeable future.

Lee moved to Vancouver, BC only two years ago after having worked in her home country for 10 years, where she received a Master’s degree in Ceramic Art from Hong-Ik University. Her newly opened studio in Vancouver specializes in tableware designs with hints of both modernity and simplicity.
