About Anat Hadar
My name is Anat. I'm a multidisciplinary artist, creating mostly in porcelain pottery and print making art. After many years of practicing art therapy, during the last few years, I focus mainly in my own creation.
My porcelain work is distinguished and unique due to the fact that it is made in a primary way, with minimum touch of the material, letting the porcelain speak for itself. My creations are actually real manual work, hand painted and hence neither one resembles the other. I try to express the gentleness of the porcelain, its sensitivity for each & every movement or folding on one hand, and the drawing upon it which corresponds with the historic Chinese blue & white, Persian miniatures and Ancient European vase painting traditions on the other hand. I also tend to combine other materials in my porcelain work, mostly rocks. This combination between the porcelain's delicacy and the rocks' roughness seems magical to me.
In my print making art, Most of my works are mono prints. I use various techniques. I work a lot with handmade cut outs, etching press etc… These contribute to the fact that most of my creations, as in the porcelain work, are "one of a kind".
I've worked for many years in art therapy with people with special needs. This period in my life was very meaningful and most rewarding. I feel that I had the privilege to work with people who were less fortunate in their lives and felt and saw each and every time, the healing and inspiring power of art. For that, I'll forever be grateful.
I was born is Israel and grew up in Kibbutz Ma'agan Michael, along the seashore. I've always felt a profound connection to nature and was deeply moved by it. Ever since I remember myself I had a strong passion for art & ancient cultures. The extent of my work actually reflects the journey of my life. It varies both in the materials and in the mediums used for my creations.
Today I live with my spouse in a seaside town near Tel Aviv. A mother of three children and also a grandmother. I'm breathing, making, creating & developing art with great pleasure.
