Studio Description:

Currently, I am the only Jewish ceramic artist in this area, whose work is primarily designed for Jewish homes. To me, clay vessels are the perfect metaphor for the Jewish people. They last through centuries and tell the compelling stories of civilizations. They are created from the earth, adamah, the life’s blood of our people who have been put though the fires of destruction. I like to think I am a part of that history, by reclaiming that earth and making beautiful things that go through the fire to strengthen them and make them useful.
