Audrey: Dr. King, it is a real honor to meet you.

Dr. King: Thank you! The honor is mine. I noticed that you designed a huge chair, in 2008, that has my quotation on it: “Hate is too great a burden to bear. I have decided to stick to love.”

Audrey: Yes, indeed!

Dr. King: What is it about? Why did you choose this sentence?

Audrey: My two-meter-high chair stands witness to a crucial subject in our region: The issue of making peace. I was chosen to be one of twenty-four artists who were asked to debate the...

The title of my artwork is a combination of two words: Jewel and Jerusalem.

My ‘Jewelsalem’ , 2005

The Old City of Jerusalem has been invaded many times throughout history. It was an “attractive” goal for military conquests by many peoples and religions during the last millennium. Jerusalem has known many breaks and ruptures that forced it to move from one culture to another. But, somehow, despite these wars and conquests, Jerusalem has risen from its ruins.

It is a city with thousands of stories, each...

Ami was the first commissioned portrait I made, and I was trembling in anticipation. The challenge was huge: To render the face of my friend's belated father based on an amazing photograph of him. The fear of missing something crucial in her Dad's facial expression weighed on me during the whole process. Before starting the portrait, I realized that my task as an artist was harder because of the family’s expectations and closeness with the subject. The family’s love intimidated me. My work needed to...

Two years ago, I was approached by a couple of curators to participate in a project involving the two cities of Tel Aviv and Berlin. Various artists in different disciplines were asked to create artwork on pairs of matkot (paddles).

At the time, I decided to create two works reflecting how I interpret the back and forth interaction of two matkot players.

My first work revolves around the name of my home, the city of Tel Aviv. I made one artwork representing a Tel (in English, a hill) and ano...

This blog is not about going back in time to the Paleolithic era; the 21st century is an era offering an extensive array of materials.

Did you know that an amazing Materials Library ( was implemented at the Holon Design Museum? This is one of the few places internationally that have been updated with the latest innovations of materials.

There is great excitement in looking for mosaic stones. The act of searching by scheduling a visit, exploring, strolling around flea markets and sho...

In light of what is currently happening, mainly in the South of Israel, my innermost thoughts are transported back to a special mosaic work that took place during the winter and spring of 2007, at the height of the missile attacks that rocked the town of Sederot.

It seems like yesterday, though; I was invited to orchestrate the mosaic-making of an 8-meter long bench, together with pupils from 7th to 9th grades. I volunteered in a unique program for junior high school students that was part of a natio...

The artist Paul Klee once said: “Art does not reproduce the visible; it renders visible.”

In my article "Mosaic Art is Fine Art," I wrote: "My own interpretation becomes the leading thread throughout my work. Each Stone has an imminent role: It can be a protagonist or antagonist. I am the director − but never entirely. 

I find that mosaic composition is the exultation of translation. Mosaic, like translation, is a process of cultural adaptation. To be an interpreter, you relate to an anterior period;...
