Young Jae Lee graduated from Seoul’s Academy of Fine Arts in 1972, and moved to Germany to complete a number of internships and further her studies in ceramic arts. Since 1987, she has served as Director of Keramische Werkstatt Margaretenhöhe GmbH in Essen, Germany. In this studio, Lee creates works for her large-scale ceramic installations and independent exhibitions while simultaneously presiding over several apprentices who are responsible for manufacturing tableware sets.
