I strive to build sustainable bridges between craft and modern technologies by developing innovative models that see craft traditions as a research tool. It includes experimental and applied material investigations, as well as historical research.
I develop advanced materials and new production technologies in my research. This is accomplished through applying traditional historical material and technological knowledge, and addresses contemporary requirements in the Defence, Space, and Industrial sectors. Additionally, I research the technological aspects of material culture and seek techno-cultural fingerprints with innovative computational tools.
I am a senior lecturer and head the research specialization for the Bezalel Ceramics and Glass Design Department. I also guest lecture in institutions in Israel and Europe.
In my material work, I believe that during the development of the concept, it is of utmost importance to portray the world through the perspective of the other, through a different point of view, in a manner that would involve these considerations as an integral part of the process of design.
My work has been included in international exhibitions and collections. This includes the permanent art collection of the Knesset (Israeli parliament) and The Design Museum Holon Collection. I also curate exhibitions regarding craft in the modern world.
