MY WORKSHOP

In 2003 I opened my own little studio in my home in Rishon-Le-Zion

and I developed my unique technique.

I use a thick sheets of copper which is cut by means of a specialized thin saw and Photochemical burning technique.

Then the copper is heated by fire using special Heating-and-Cooling techniques, that makes the metal malleable and gives it the special variety of colors.

The copper goes through a hammering and embossing process where it gets its shiny texture. Slowly, the symbols become three-dimensional and look almost alive.

The next step requires 2 layers of lacquer covering to prevent oxidation.

When the copper is dry, holes are drilled and beads are added.
