A beautiful picture attracts our attention , on a three-dimensional surface it may literally pull us into the form or get our eyes and imagination to travel around it.
There are many ways to create an image on clay: drawing, coloring, glazing, sgraffito. An extremely versatile and lately very popular technique is silkscreen printing on clay. Starting from drawings, photographs and texts on paper one creates the negative for the transfer on the ceramic surface . You can also overlay drawing and sgraffito . The copious possibilities of representation do enhance not only the surface but also affect the content and substance of what we search to express.
A master in the use of layered image and imagination is the Hungarian artist Maria- Geszler Garzuly . Look at her work where poetic content and social and political commentary are present with touching and profound beauty.
