Terracotta technique master, Lee Ji-sook’s first NFT drop
Lee Ji-sook is known as a master of terracotta techniques. Through her works, she creates exquisite harmony of traditional materials and modern aesthetics. It is a symbol and hope to protect the ordinary and fun moments in everyday life. Little materials in the artworks reflect how those small things brighten our lives.
She makes a shape out of soil and bake it at over 1,000 degrees. Then, she colors with acrylic paint. This unique technique shows an exquisite harmony with the artist’s world of work, which reinterprets old book painting in a modern way. The object, material, expression technique, and message of the work are all in perfect harmony.
Lee Ji-sook’s first NFT series “Wealth and Glory” consists of works introduced in Lee Ji-sook’s recent individual exhibition held at ArtVerse KAF Gallery. Through this series, the artist conveys the message that the meaning of wealth and honor is not large and great, but found in the small things of life in daily life.
Lee Ji-sook has more than 20 years of experience using the most difficult pottery technique that makes her work’s price range of over $60,000. This NFT series is an opportunity to collect her works for less than $700.
The series consists of a total of 6 works, and 5 (Wealth and Glory 1~5) of them will be dropped limited to 100 editions, and one work (Wealth and Glory 6) will be up to 1000 editions. Each of the series will be released through ENFTEE.
