And suddenly you come across a lovely gem … beautiful ceramics by Jennifer Lee
Jennifer Lee was born in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, in 1956.
From 1975 to 1979 she studied ceramics and tapestry at Edinburgh College of Art. She then spent eight months on a travelling scholarship to the USA where she researched Southwest Indian prehistoric ceramics and visited contemporary West Coast potters.
From 1980 to 1983 she continued her work in ceramics at the Royal College of Art in London. Since then her travels have included trips to Egypt, India, Australia and Japan as well as Europe and the USA.
Lee’s pots are hand built and she has developed a method of coloring them by mixing metallic oxides into the clay before making.
She buys these oxides on her travels, from countries such as Japan, North America and Australia. Some of the coloured clay she mixes up is laid down for eighteen years to mature.
Jennifer Lee lives and works in London and regularly exhibits in London, Sydney and Los Angeles.
