Viv Lee
Sympoiesis Vessel II

Based in a former cigarette factory in East Glasgow, ceramicist Viv Lee creates smooth-edged vessels that subtly reference the human body.

It was during her degree in Fine Art Sculpture at Glasgow School of Art that Viv first chanced upon hand-building. She became instantly drawn to the process, finding working with clay both meditative and grounding. But it is no coincidence that Viv has ended up working with her hands: a ten-year career in floristry prior to ceramics, combined with a short spell of aromatherapy set Viv up with the perfect collection of skills for sculpting with natural materials.

Pits, pinholes and unexpected glaze irregularities are all embraced by Viv, perfectly in line with the Wabi-Sabi philosophy. The surfaces of her figurative vessels are subtly textured, and glazed in a palette of off-whites and earthy tones.

"I put aside my analytical mind in favour of spontaneous and gestural sculpting."

"The tactile quality of clay invites touch, and much like the human body, it registers even the most gentle of pressure."
