Berlin born designer Elisa Strozyk’s ‘Ceramic-Surface-Reflections’ is a selection of objects featuring ceramic surfaces merged with items that serve a function, such as mirrors and wooden shelves. They take the form of both wall mounted and free standing objects.
Using metal oxides and powdered minerals which are kiln fired to produce various glass-like finishes, Strozyk developed a specific process in which to apply the glaze to clay: by rotating the surface and applying a blowing technique, liquid glazes pool and mix together to leave traces of movement, creating smoke-like patterns that also give the surface the appearance of marble.
Strozyk studied a Masters course in Future Textile Design at Central Saint Martins in London after her Diploma in Textile and Surface Design at KHB in Berlin. She was awarded the first prize in the Salone Satellite Award in 2011 and was part of the SIMPLE-die neue Einfachheit exhibition of new simplistic design at the designforum in Wien last year.
