Jae-Hyo Lee | Of Discarded Tree Trunks

South Korean artist Jae-Hyo Lee creates pieces that challenge the minds of anyone who gazes upon them.  His ability to manipulate and transform discarded wood into beautiful/functional art/furniture, is simply mind blowing.   By burning and polishing various chunks of wood, he is able to create visually appealing and smooth surfaces!

“I want to express the wood’s natural characteristics without adding my intentions,” says Lee. “I like to make the most out of the material’s inherent feeling. Little things add up to transmit a stronger power, greater energy. That is why I have quite a lot of large pieces.”
