Raising my children in the Israeli experience has influenced me strongly. seeing 18-year-old kids given a uniform and sent to confront other 18-year-old kids who happened to be born on the other side of a line someone drew on a map. I Could not escape the feeling of how random fate is, how different life can be if you are just born a few kilometers away, with a different skin color or even just a few years later.
I tell my story, mostly threw kid. I relate to their innocence, the universality of their thoughts and needs. sometimes they can be just kids playing and sometimes they are kids put in bad situations.
I wonder what kind of world we are leaving our children behind us. That is the main platform through which my work evolves.
I see my role as an artist to be the voice of those who are not heard. And to point a finger towards that, that is not seen.
My work is exhibited in leading galleries and museums worldwide including new Taipei city Yingge Ceramic Museum (Taiwan), Mint Museum USA, Gardner Museum Canada, Whatcom Museum Washington, Alcora Museum Spain, New Bedford art Museum USA, Vallauris institute of art France, Keramikmuseum Westerland Germany, Eretz Israel Museum, Changchun International ceramic gallery, museo Sivori Argentina, and many more.
