Born in Hong Kong with time spent living in Toronto and London, ceramic artist Viv Lee is currently based in the west of Scotland.

Graduating in 2017 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in sculpture from the Glasgow School of Art, Viv's practice embraces the imperfections and idiosyncrasies of the hand, creating unique one-off and limited edition functional and sculptural ceramics with a focus on vessels, hand built through pinching, coiling and slab-building techniques.

Drawing inspiration from Zen Buddhism and western mindfulness practices, the process of making often takes place intuitively without a fixed idea of the outcome, allowing the material and the moment to dictate the form that emerges.
