droplet-menta-vase-wide

Droplet Menta Vase / Wide - US$ 90

droplet-menta-vase-tall

Droplet Menta Vase / Tall - US$ 95

Droplet is inspired by nature, by the droplets that contains the essence of life. It's materialized around the concept of preserving flowers in a drop, resembling nature in an elegant form. A hand-blown glass droplet is captured inside a hand-hammered brass frame, illustrating traditional forms of ancient amphora vases. To represent nature's essence, the glass droplet is tinted into three different colors; Aqua, Menta, and Honey. And the natural glow of glass is combined splendidly with the sparkle of brass.

The simple 'slide-and-click' system makes it easy to assemble. The bird balances on the tall pointed stand or for example on the spine of a book.

snow-waltz-oval-plate

SNOW WALTZ oval plate - US$ 17

snow-waltz-round-square-plate

SNOW WALTZ round square plate - US$ 19

In the calm night someday in winter snow fell like dancing a waltz to the rhythm. While making these plates what I thought the most was the emotion of users. Because of it, decorations of the plates were excluded as much as possible in order to express only snow and footprints on the snow. Hope you meet the moment of the beginning of careful thought by seeing the footprints that remain alone on a calm hill.

 

nacre-tray

Nacre tray - US$ 100

nacre-small-tray

Nacre small tray - US$ 40

Nacre series is an attempt to offering products borne of reinterpretations of jagae (mother-of-pearl). Attempts were made to go beyond the traditional and conventional representation of this material and elevate jagae works to new heights created with contemporary aesthetics and innovative production methods. Irregular patterns created by mother-of-pearl and its combination with modern materials were thoroughly explored, and a variety of products were developed based on such experimentation, from trays to coasters and brooches, to add sparkle to everyday living.

Shallows: S - US$ 98 / M - US$ 105 / L - US$ 115

Shallows combines a crystal vase, plant, and water into one form. The surface tension of water becomes a textural element – the shallow at the top of the container gives space for liquid to be filled. The water at the surface of the vase acts as a poetic expression for the vitality of the vessel’s function, to give life to the plant in which it contains.

the-uniqueness-of-waves-xii

Dusk over Beit Yanai beach, Israel.

The Uniqueness of Waves describes the power and beauty of the sea. Each wave and movement is unique, and each picture freezes a single moment at a time when that uniqueness is preserved forever. For me, the series is a practice of photographic meditation - an attempt to calm the inner waves with an awareness of the here and now.

Untitled Pattern #2 - From US$34

Artist Statement:

I always intrigued by form, shape, and color abstractly. All of them combine into a pattern and I love creating it as my main style. I always starting using ink on paper or other traditional tools like painting or pencil or pastels. Sometimes I made 2-4 patterns, then I digitalize my drawing, and combine that patterns into 1 final composition. I also using vibrant color and some texture to add to my patterns.

Into - From US$63

Into - From US$63

Artist Statement:

...Combining the desire to get closer to an object that I am attracted to and thinking about it in a time other than the present...

"I want to draw it because it is beautiful" is the same as "I want to be like that because it looks cool" or "I want to sing because it seems fun." This is the first condition of "the desire to get closer to an object that I am attracted to."

The second condition, "thinking about it in a time frame other than the present," is the process and result of a creation derived from an attractive object and the capturing of it on a flat surface. The process of composition, extraction of colors, and the reconstruction of them helps one to detach from the obvious standards of everyday life and start thinking in a time that is out of the ordinary. The result is a creation that includes more "confusion" than "comprehensibility," keeping in mind that "confusion" helps one think in a time frame, not of the present. In our busy, everyday lives, we often can't think this way, but it's like how you are transported when you think about a favorite place, movie, or music - I believe this artistic process is similar. 

This artwork is available in:
Size - A4 / A3
Material - Canvas Print / Paper Print (Matt)
