Lee Middleman’s Spring Ceramics Open Studio – 2023
Lee will exhibition his high fired decorative functional vessels and new lines of crater-glazed art, ash-glazed vessels and pit-fired works.
He creates classic forms with surface textures that give the work energy and vitality. He seeks to create patterns and textures that explore the organic interplay between order and randomness as found in nature.
Lee’s goal is to pursue the interplay of shape, surface texture, ordered patterns, and random effects so that work is created that intrigues the eye and demands to be touched. Although his work is functional, it is often prized as decorative.
Museums in China, Japan, Korea, Greece, Turkey, Slovenia, India and the United States have selected his work for their permanent collections. He has participated in three solo exhibitions, 85 group exhibitions in the USA and 48 international group exhibitions.
