Paul Lee

East Brunswick, NJ, USA
Hi my name is Paul Lee and I currently go to Pratt Institute to study illustration and ceramics. My goal is to integrate the essence of illustration and ceramics to create more of who I am. A process I am working on is handbuilding animals out of clay and slipcasting them into functional products.
