Lee Hyang-koo

Lee Hyang-koo’s works show the artist’s appreciation for detail. Low relief and open-work are the two main elements that characterise the artist’s pieces. Minute decorative elements, such as flowers or Buddhas, are repeated across the whole body of the pots in a seemingly endless fashion.

Intricate open-work can be used as the main form of decoration or can be combined with different glazes or figurative decorations.
