Kyle Lee was born in White Plains, NY and currently resides in Prospect Heights,
Brooklyn. He creates voluptuous vessels and well-turned cups that provide the
canvas for his unique hand painting and surface treatments. Kyle’s practice has
included teaching over the years at Educational Alliance Art School and other
institutions. Kyle has studied ceramics in multiple studios throughout Manhattan
and Brooklyn, NY and has exhibited in solo and group gallery exhibitions in New
York City and abroad. His work can also be found in private collections in London,
France, New York, Pittsburgh, and North Carolina. Over his 15 years as a
ceramicist, Kyle has developed his unique style of ceramic art incorporating traditional
shapes with a colorful and abstract sense of design and glaze application.
Kyle is a founding member of BKLYN CLAY and the first recipient of the BKLYN
CLAY Residency. He is currently creating work for West Elm and Paul Smith Design
Shop & Gallery
Kyle currently teaches classes at the Educational Alliance Art School in the
Lower East Side of Manhattan.
My work is inspired by the artists Jean-Michel Basquiat and Piet Mondrian. It
aims to capture the abstract design of color, depth and the imperfection of traditionally shaped forms that exhibit both functional and sculptural.
