East Lansing, MI

Jae Won Lee, a professor of art at Michigan State University, East Lansing Michigan, received her MFA from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University and a BFA from California State University–Long Beach. She exhibits extensively across the US and the world, recently having two solo exhibitions: Layers of Mountains, at the Thomas Hunter Project Space, Hunter College of CUNY, New York; and Beyond Mountains at the C2 Gallery PWS, Jingdezhen, China. Her work is also part of many notable collections such as the American Museum of Ceramic Art, the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts, and the Racine Art Museum. Lee’s porcelain sculptures, often comprised of multiples and layers, are “assembled into a large singular unit toward conveying the idea of white winter as a place to contemplate simplicity, silence, and solitude.”
