Jennie Jieun Lee

by Grace Bonney

I love a good color wash. Love. So when I find a collection of ceramics that not only uses them but celebrates them in such a huge and central way, I’m sold. These beautifully colorful pieces from artist Jennie Jieun Lee are a great example. Jennie uses bold washes of pinks, peaches, blues and blues in a way that makes these almost too pretty to use for any other purpose than display. Although I would of course end up using them for something more functional, I’m tempted to line and pile these up along a mantle (I need to get one of those first) so they can just be admired for their intensely gorgeous color. Jennie sells a wide range of her work online right here, but if you’re in Brooklyn, you can check out her current show in person at Clayspace 1205 (1205 Manhattan Avenue) in Greenpoint. After that, grab dinner at Glasserie– it’s my new favorite spot in the neighborhood. xo, grace
