Catalogue Note

This unique coffee table by Lee Jae-Hyo marries nature and industry, and epitomizes his distinctive sculptural style. Countless nails were pounded and driven into the wood, then ground and polished.  The whole piece was then set aflame, burned and charred. Once can feel the sweat of the creator, but marvel at the elegance and wit of the creation. The artistry of Lee is how seamlessly he blends sculpture and design, and bridges the divide between the countryside and the factory, something rarely seen in the work of studio craftsmen.
