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.

Inhwa Lee’s porcelain sets draw from the appearance of traditional Korean ceramics, but place greater emphasis on the malleability and aesthetic possibilities presented by her material. Lee works with a blend of opaque and translucent clay and porcelain to create hand-thrown cylindrical vessels with a marbled appearance.

Once her clay is dry, she works the interior and exterior of each piece to render the walls so fine that light can pass through them. In creating delicate clay vessels that resemble marbled paper and appear to glow from within, Lee pushes her material to its limit and displays its inherent elegance.
