Exploring themes of attraction/repulsion, familiar/unfamiliar and other-worldliness, Lax presents a notion of nature that can be simultaneously threatening and beautiful.

The materials she uses are vital to this discourse: Porcelain is selected for its purity, fragility and strength in commenting on those quiet or unseen organisms, especially plants, fungi and bacteria. Her fictional versions of natural forms are often based on factual/scientific information, resulting in work that challenges what we know and imagine about the organisms on our planet.

The medium of ceramic is perfect for harnessing this fragile power and the ceramic methods used making are often traditionally based. These works can exist in a variety of environments, often made in components they can transform and change through installation and in response to site-specific contexts and questions.
