Design by Jiyong Lee.
Jiyong Lee is a studio artist and educator who lives and works in Carbondale, Illinois.
The segmentation series 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. The Segmentation series is subtle and quiet yet structurally complex. He transforms solid glass using cutting, lamination, carving, and surface refining processes to make art that is both beautiful and deeply invested with meaning.
