Beyond the pleasure of a precisely calculated form, Kwangho Lee searches for the aesthetics in the value of memories that connect the past and the present provided by the human hand.
Kwangho Leeâ€™s work comes mostly from his childhood experiences. Through his work he searches for possible changes and new meanings in the most ordinary objects of our daily lives. Kwangho believes that many of the mundane objects have boundless capabilities of transforming into something else. Guided by his motto â€œORDINARY OBJECTS CAN BECOME SOMETHING ELSEâ€ Kwangho seeks to express the symphony of design and craft. His projects never undergo machinery process. Therefore only small quantities are â€˜craftedâ€™ out of his hands.
