Cinnamon Lee produces jewellery, lighting and objects working primarily with metals. After completing post-graduate studies in Gold and Silversmithing at the ANU School of Art, Lee moved back to Sydney where she maintains a practice spanning fifteen years. Her work combines digital manufacturing and traditional gold and silversmithing techniques and inspired by subtle interactions between people and objects, explores the juncture of technology, the machine and hand-made. Lee’s work has been exhibited widely, including at Object and Metalab in Sydney and at the Museum of Art and Design in New York. She was a finalist in Launch Pad 2011 and the IDEAA Awards in 2011 and 2012, , has lectured at the ANU School of Art and received numerous grants including an artsACT grant for new work. Her work is held in both public and private collections including the National Gallery of Australia.
