Lee Kang-hyo has spent more than thirty years endeavoring to interpret the Korean Buncheong in his way. During the 1970s and 1980s, many novice ceramicists looked to the past to modernize Korean ceramics. He had originally wanted to become a painter and as he gradually mastered the skill of applying liquefied white clay to the surface of vessels and large platters, he learned to treat ceramic surfaces like paper for ink brush painting. The marks he creates are comparable to landscapes depicting Korea’s four distinct seasons. 

Lee’s work can be found in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago; the Asian Art Museum, San Francisco; the British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the Cité de la Céramique, Sèvres, France; Gyeonggi Ceramic Museum, Korea.
