An on-line Masterclass on Monday, 27.11.2023 at 20:00
Eliza Au originally from Vancouver, B.C. in Canada and currently an Assistant Professor of Ceramics at the University of North Texas, was hosted by the Benyamini School of Ceramic Art where she worked for over a month. In the masterclass open to the general public she will talk about her works and demonstrate her unique method of working.
She creates forms that act as lines in space and patterns which mirror and replicate each other, seemingly in a dance of artificial mitosis. “Working digitally in CAD affects how I create and view artwork. The liminal space between complexity and order allows room for play and discovery through the rules of algorithms and parametric design. The digital interface has its own inherent surfaces and textures such as the wireframe, pixels and meshes which we experience visually. The planning and production process work in sync with each other, through line drawings in CAD which are engraved in wood and eventually cast in clay. I am interested in bringing the wireframe surface into the physical world through the processes of craft, such as plaster mold making and press molding clay.”
Cost: 40 NIS for the general public / 30 NIS for Benyamini students
