Translucent Glass Sculptures Split Light & Color In The Most Beautiful Ways

Published 4 years ago

Building blocks of life caught in glass: this is the subject of Jiyong Lee’s Segmentation series of sculptures. He was fascinated with science of cells and their division, and recreated it in his favorite medium. Using cutting, lamination, carving, and surface refining processes, Lee made sculptural representations of embryos and cells. The sculptures are fascinating, to the point where they don’t look like real, solid objects.

This is part of Lee’s creative intent, as the sculptures are imbued with deeper meaning. “I work with glass that has transparency and translucency, two qualities that serve as perfect metaphors for what is known and unknown about life science,” Lee wrote on his website.

Jitong Lee has a bachelor degree in Fine Art from the Department of Industrial Crafts at Hong-ik University, Korea, and a master’s degree in Fine Art from Rochester Institute of Technology in New York. He’s an associate professor at Southern Illinois University, has received many a scholarship and participated in many exhibitions.
