EIKCAM CERAMICS IS A HOME DECOR COLLECTION DESIGNED AND HANDMADE BY VANCOUVER ARTIST/DESIGNER, GRACE LEE. MOST OF GRACE’S WORK LENDS A SENSE OF NATURALNESS AND WHIMSY WHICH SERVE AS FUNCTIONAL PIECES FOR THE TABLE OR HOME.
THE ARTIST’S APPROACH TO DESIGN REMAINS A KIND OF LAYERED SIMPLICITY. SHE OFTEN COMBINES DIFFERENT TEXTURES WITH HUES AND COLORS TO COMPLEMENT THE FORM, SHAPE AND FUNCTIONALITY OF THE PIECE.
After completing studies in ceramics and an Industrial Design degree from Emily Carr in 2001, Grace began to work as a visual stylist for boutiques, hotels and exhibitions across Canada. Soon thereafter, she became an art director for a local home decor distributor. While traveling around the world for inspiration, she created lifestyle imagery and designed tableware and housewares for national and international retailers. After a long stint in the corporate realm, one particular and life changing trip to Paris inspired Grace to return to her love of working with her hands. In particular, clay was calling her and she has designed and made many collections and forms ever since.
