Yael Braha

Yael Braha (Seagrove, NC)

“I create functional ceramics with bold and stylized surface patterns which feature tessellations, optical and geometrical illusions. I use lines and curves to distort and add dynamism to the surface of the work, and I use seams and negative spaces to create contrast and tension within a form. The surface patterns reliefs add a surprising tactile experience when the work is held, touched, and used.”
Born in Italy and daughter of refugees from North Africa, Yael was raised in Italy in a visually abundant environment that shaped her love for composition, aesthetics, and visual arts. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from the European Institute of Design in Rome, and a Master of Fine Arts in Cinema from San Francisco State University. Her past multidisciplinary background – from graphic design, to cinema, to metal fabrication and installation – informs her recent focus on ceramic work.
