Eliza Au’s work explores the use of metal, glass, paper, and wax. Traditionally, her work is ceramic based and uses a slipcasting method. She obtained her degrees from Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. She has been in residence at The Studio, Greenwich House Pottery, and The Museum of Contemporary Craft. Her work has been exhibited at Scripps College and the Gardiner Museum.
During her April 2010 residency, Au worked on a glass carpet entitled Invisible Visions, referring both to the transparency of glass and the religious idea of believing without seeing.
