Born in Israel, I s­­­tudied ceramics at the Visual Art Centre, Be’er Sheva in the late 70’s. Although trained in all ceramic disciplines I soon developed a strong affection to the wheel which has remained with me ever since.

 

I took a break from pottery mid 90’s to bring up a family and trained as graphic designer for that duration. At present I combine both, having set up a studio at my home, in Kendal.

 

My pottery is mainly domestic and functional, wheel-thrown in high-fired stoneware which is tough and durable, oven and dishwasher proof as well as microwave safe.

 

Aesthetically, I am drawn to simplicity of form and strive to combine this with the intended purpose of the ware, the latter being of equal importance to me.

In 2019 I gained an MA in Ceramics from UCLan.
