2008년 대학 졸업 후 꾸준히 작업을 해왔으며 단체전, 다수의 공모전에 참가하여 수상하였다. 민화 작호도의 익살스러움에 흥미를 느껴 작품연구에 몰두 하였다. 민화를 소재로 한 도자기로 ‘정지희’만의 특색을 찾고자 노력하고 있다.

Since the university graduation in 2008, she continued her work, and participated in various group exhibition and contests which she was awarded. She did not neglect learning, and focused on research after being interested in clownish charm of a folk painting, Tiger and Magpie. She tries to find her own "Jung Jihee"s distinctive characteristic with pottery based on folk painting. The surface decoration uses various characteristics like materials of folk painting, unconventionality, and anti perspective. It is not just a simple decoration, but contains symbiosis of folk painting which also implies auspicious sign. By understanding farcicality of folk painting and easy and simple beauty inhibits characteristics that fits modern sense of beauty, we believe visual joy through decoration based on this is the best value.
