Eliisa Isoniemi is ceramic artist and printmaker.
She lives and works in Helsinki, Finland.
She has studied at the University of Art and Design,
Helsinki and at the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts.
She uses lithophane technique in her ceramic works,
which are translucent porcelain images.
A lithophane is an etched or molded artwork in thin very translucent porcelain
that can only be seen clearly when back lit with a light source. It is a design or scene
in intaglio that appears in gray tones. A lithophane presents a three-dimensional image
- completely different from two-dimensional engravings that are "flat".
The images change characteristics depending on the light source behind them.
Her prints are figurative monotypes.
