Haejung Lee received two MFAs; the most recent degree is from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, and the other is from Kyung Hee University in Suwon, Korea. Her work has been exhibited internationally in shows such as Route (Rú: t), Baltimore Clayworks, Baltimore, MD; Taking Root, Center for Contemporary Art, Baton Rouge, LA; as well as Taking Root II, Taipei County Yingge Ceramics Museum, Taiwan.  Her forms depict universal objects, rice for instance, but are often more recognizable by a Korean viewer than an American viewer.  As a Korean-born immigrant adjusting to American culture, Lee’s work acts as a metaphor for her own life — a tree is not easily moved, yet, when transplanted, it will continue to grow and acclimate to its new environment.
