Helen Lee

Helen Lee is an artist, designer, educator, and glassblower. She is not a typographer, but pretends to be through the material specificity of glass. Lee’s work explores the morphological nature of language through experimental work with glass and typography. She has an extensive repertoire of vitreous typography. She translates typographic forms into blown glass and vice versa. She writes in light; she writes in shadow. Lee holds an MFA in Glass from the Rhode Island School of Design and a BSAD in Architecture from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is currently an Assistant Professor and Head of the Glass Lab in the Art Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
