Steven Young LeeSteven Young Lee, Resident Artist Director


Steven Young Lee received his MFA in Ceramics from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2004. In 2004-5, he lectured and taught at numerous universities throughout China. While there, Lee created a new body of work as part of a one-year cultural and educational exchange fellowship in Jingdezhen, Jianxi Province. He has taught at Interlochen Center for the Arts in Michigan, the Clay Art Center in New York and the Lill Street Studio in Chicago, and Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, B.C. Lee is currently the Resident Artist Director of the Archie Bray Foundation.

"My current work examines the process of recognition-how individuals draw realities based on experiences and environment. Through functional pottery and sculpture, I challenge pre-conceptions of style, form, symbolism, superstitions and identity."
