porcelain, underglaze transfer
Laura Brodax, Cyclamens Tulipere
I am a ceramic tile artist , photographer and serigrapher. Using these mediums I print photographic images onto porcelain tile, create mosaic and mold clay shapes. The printing process creates a unique transfer that combines images and technique with the fluidity and permanence of a glazed and fired surface.
When I approach a project, I envision how the artwork can form continuity within a setting. I explore the many layers of history, geography and community influences to find a common denominator.
I have created large-scale public art projects throughout the Pacific Northwest and West coast. I find the forms and structures in nature as well as the urban landscape graphically compelling . The lines, textures and patterns found around us help create a printed portrait which I find to have depth, clarity and truth.
