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).
