Creating ceramic works and studying of new work methods, give me great enjoyment.
It is a process that demands persistence,
in terms of studying and hard work.
Since most of my work involves utilitarian pots,
I give much consideration to the form of the pots and to the compatibility of the clay, the glazes and the firing temperatures to the final use of the pots.I find it
important that the pots I create are not only a pleasure to use, feel and handle, but that they are also a pleasure to look at.
I work mainly with stoneware and porcelain and fire my works in an electric kiln to approximately 1220º C.
For decorating my works I use mainly the Sgraffito method. Colored engobs are painted over the pots and then carved to expose parts of each pot's body underneath. Other colorful decorations are used as well.
I work in my own studio in Tel Aviv, Israel, and I am a member of "ChomerTov",
a cooperative of 15 artists. We sell our works in our gallery, which is situated in the neighborhood of Neve Tzedek, Tel Aviv (www.chomertov.co.il).
