    Frank Lloyd Gallery, Santa Monica, California, "Jennifer Lee", (solo exhibition), 2002.

    Jennifer Lee is an accomplished Scottish ceramicist, based in London, whose work can be found in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and Los Angeles County Museum of Art. She was awarded the LOEWE Craft Prize in 2018 and was a 2020 recipient of an Order of the British Empire (OBE) for service to ceramics in 2020.

    Lee makes hand built forms with subtle coloration achieved through mixing metallic oxides into the clay before the pots are executed. They have beautifully natural surfaces and textures, and large, generous forms.
