For her Ceramic Table, Elisa Strozyk mixes and pools different liquid glazes on a ceramic tabletop surface. She then gives it a spin them under blown air to leave traces of fluid movement and smoke-like patterns, which are solidified in the heat of the kiln. The finished surface shows the affect of gravity, flow, and collision. The Ceramic Table shown here measures 52 x 52 x 49 cm, but the design is available in three different sizes with frame options in copper and steel. Due to the handmade process, each tabletop is unique.
Based in Berlin, Strozyk studied Textile & Surface Design at KHB in Berlin and completed the MA course Future Textiles at Central Saint Martins in London. Her work blurs the boundaries between 2D and 3D, hard and soft, textiles and furniture. She regularly collaborates with different artists, designers, and companies. In 2010, she received the German Design Award from the German Design Council and the German Ministry of Economics. Her has been shown at Design Miami/ and Victoria & Albert Museum.
