About The Artwork

This item, which look like restored ancient pottery, are, in fact, made of tens of thousands of pages that were cut out of the volumes of Encyclopedia Hebraica, an expired cultural institution. Densely layered pages encode within themselves valuable, historical, and cultural knowledge. The designer chose to carve the raw material for her vessels from the world of knowledge. Thus, the artifacts preserve knowledge, and contain within themselves a visual treasure. Its discovery within the pottery reconstructs the surprise and excitement of leafing through the encyclopedia. The scale of the pottery is derived from the measurements of the book. We can feel its pages by looking at the surface. The vessels were digitally designed and cut with a contemporary technology of laser, however layering the papers and binding them into an object reintroduced manual labor into the process. Limited edition: Series # 1/15

I was born in the US, raised in Argentina and Israel and gained my professional education in California. With a strong multidisciplinary background in environmental and industrial design, my practice tends to blur the edges from seriousness to playfulness, craft to advanced technology and from unique objects to mini architecture. My work is rooted in rigorous research and study, with inspirational solutions found in the natural surroundings as well as the human behavior observation, while always examining the spatial relationships between man, object and the environment. Today, my studio is located in Northern Israel, and i am engaging in a diverse range of activities: designing outdoor elements, exhibitions, furniture and interior design, to creating site-specific installations and issuing furniture patent registration.
