Seung-Hea Lee

ava

Korean jeweler Seung-Hea Lee’s work is inspired by an interest in natural forms and colors, specifically that which reflects seasonal change. “In spring,” she states, “everything is blooming, and the feeling of color is light; in winter the colors change to dark. I try to communicate [this] along with nature.” Lee received a BFA from California College of Arts and Crafts, Oakland, CA, and MFA from Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI, where she received the RISD Award of Excellence in recognition of her outstanding talent; she was a member of the metals faculty at RISD, until returning to Korea. Lee’s work has been exhibited at galleries and museums internationally and been featured in American Craft, Metalsmith’s Exhibition in Print, and Jewelers Quarterly, as well as the jewelry series published by Lark Books.
