My work transforms clay into conceptual objects and fluctuates between abstract and form. I share my internal reflection and personal insights and their significance on the individual and the reciprocity with society and culture
I utilize the alternative firing techniques of painting and covering with Terra Sigillata from natural samples of earth gathered in Israel and around the world. These are the source of the multicolored palette. The warm hues create the backdrop where the imagery meets infinity. In addition to this technique, I use Arabian pigment Luster. This is where I achieve the varying luminosity and the gloss, dependent upon the observer’s eye, angle, and distance.
