I had to check my values, and consider each of them against the values of the possible parties from which I had to choose. It was about choosing the most important values.

"Crafts" Exhibition - Between Liberalism and Traditon

  Hi friends, Since I am working with my hands all day long, and am proud that one of the core values of my business is the meticulous handmade process, I am often faced with issues regarding mass production vs. handmade small series process. This issue was the beginning point of an exhibition I presented in collaboration of my studio partner Adi Yair (a weaver and fashion designer) at the Design week of Jerusalem 2018 last month.  We asked ourselves several questions: Can design and conservatism co-exist? Or is design based, by its very definition, on innovation? Is there a...

Working with unconventional materials makes it perfectly normal that I get a lot of questions about my process.

In an attempt to answer these questions I created a short video documenting the process of adding concrete to silver and gold jewelry.
