Dianne Lee’s Handy series feature a distinctive edge to each vessel that shows the outline of cupped hands that welcome and care for the objects placed within.
Pops of bright glaze colours and juicy contrasts between matte and gloss surfaces, along with a dynamic graphic approach, give a unique character to each piece.
Dianne Lee is a Toronto based ceramic artist and graduate of OCAD University. Dianne uses clay to explore and examine process art, personal narratives and the vessel. She explores this through functional objects, installation and multimedia.
The notion of the vessel and its historical relationship to narratives further informs her practice as she creates work that examines ideas of containment, fragility, and permanence.
Dianne has exhibited internationally, and sells locally. She teaches ceramics out of her Toronto east end Studio, as well as at the Gardiner Museum, The Jewish Community Centre, and OCAD University.
