Viv Lee was born in Hong Kong and studied at Glasgow School of Art. After graduating, she remained in Glasgow and is still based there today, creating ceramics inspired by the beautiful irregularity of nature. Rather than seeking perfect symmetry in her work, Lee looks to organic forms – particularly the human body – and embraces the imperfect. Lee creates unique, one-off, sculptural ceramics by hand in Glasgow. Mindfully made, each piece is a unique work of art, which also serves a functional purpose.
Lee’s work is held in private and corporate collections in Scotland, England, USA, Denmark, Vienna, Germany, France, Italy, Lithuania, Canada, Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Dubai and Australia. Selected group shows include BARRO, Materia Materia, Mexico (2022); Claylarks, The New Craftsmen, London (2022); An Act of Making, M.A.H Yorkton Studios, London (2021); Craft Scotland Selects, The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh (2020); VESSEL, Custom Lane, Edinburgh (2019); TERRA, The Briggait, Glasgow (2019).
