Glass Artwork from Jiyong Lee

Jiyong Lee is a studio artist and educator living in Carbondale, Illinois. His segmentation series of glass work is inspired by his fascination with science of cell, its division and the journey of growth that starts from a single cell and goes through a million divisions to become a life. He works with glass that has transparency and translucency, two qualities that serve as perfect metaphors for what is known and unknown about life science. He transforms solid glass using cutting, lamination, carving, and surface refining processes to make art that is both beautiful and deeply invested with meaning.

Jiyong Lee has served as a member of the board of directors for the Glass Art Society since 2009. He has won a number of honors, including the Emerging Artist Award from the Glass Art Society, several scholarships including the Saxe Award from the Pilchuck Glass School and the Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass. His work was featured in New Glass Review 24, 32, and 35 and has been exhibited and collected nationally and internationally. Recent highlights include an acquisition by the Corning Museum of Glass and a solo exhibition at the Duane Reed Gallery in St. Louis.
