Okjoo Lee has recently discovered a newfound joy in the art of pottery-making in the land of enchantment. Lee’s pieces capture the vibrant colors of New Mexico and the artist herself enjoys experimenting with various hues. Her motifs stem from her South Korean roots sided by her years of living in the states, as shown in her range of versatility. Lee creates pots, plates, and vases with daring curves and colorful paintings, often capturing her eye for the beauty in the small things in life, from bright-hued flowers to cats and other animal motifs. The artist considers the functionality of her pieces as well as their aesthetic beauty, as her greatest joy comes from knowing her pieces are put to many great uses, such as in parties and other social gatherings.
