German designer Elisa Strozyk premiered her set of ceramic tables at the most recent Milan Design Week.
Made of cordierite and ceramic glazes with steel and copper frames, Strozyk states that she was inspired by the “liquid suspension of metal oxides and powdered minerals” during the firing process. To make the tables, Strozyk let different liquid glazes pool and mix together while the tabletops were rotated and exposed to blown air. This left traces of fluid movement, creating distinctive patterns as the tabletops were fired inside the kiln. Strozyk also created crisscross designs into one of the tabletops with a carving tool.
Strozyk is a 2009 Master’s graduate of Future Textile Design at Central Saint Martins, London and a 2007 graduate of Textile and Surface Design at KHB, Berlin.
