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.
I will be back again at Potfest in the Pen 2020 - note new dates:
Fri, 30 Oct – Sun, 1 Nov, 2020, at Skirsgill Auction Mart, Penrith open 10:00 - 16:00
