Born and raised in Seoul, Korea – artist Grace Eunmi Lee is “interested in things that are unnoticed and appear to have little or no significance…”. Aptly, her work is inspired by microorganisms which she represents in the form of tiny, yet monstrously adorable, ceramic creatures. While some of her pieces are available in the form of charismatic gold leafed salt and pepper shakers, ring holders and vessels… Grace most often groups her tiny charmers en masse to form ‘monumental’ entities. In doing so, she strives to emphasize both the importance of the individual as well as their place in creating something much larger. Enjoy!
