Lee Jae-Hyo’s work is on display in temporary and permanent collections throughout the planet – in cities as far afield as London [5] and Washington DC – and it’s easy to see why. Using nothing more complicated than wood, along with other simple instruments such as stainless steel nails, he creates larger-than-life sculptures that are dazzling in their scope.

In addition to these wooden spheres, Jae-Hyo makes furniture with a similar material palette, displaying a restraint and patience that few artists today possess. Please visit Jae-Hyo’s website [3] to get a better sense of his extraordinary range.
