The ever-changing life of landscape inspires me: in particular, that of my homeland, Israel, and of my present home, Northern California. I explore the fragility of nature, human existence and the fleetingness of time by using organic materials to create forms that burn out in the kiln. The remnants speak of the spirit and beauty of what once existed. In my work, images and memories alive from the past speak with the transient present to create a visual story about vulnerability, yearning and the ephemeral nature of life.
