Hi, my name is Orit. Thank you for dropping in.
I’m a ceramics and graphic designer.
I would like to share with you what I have been doing
since I graduated from art school in 2002.

During the last ten years I have been working with clay, using various techniques
such as handbuilding, throwing on the potter's wheel and casting.

I also worked in a fashion company as a visual communication designer
and fashion producer.

When I create, I usually draw upon qualities such as roughness and imperfection.

I am fascinated by the relationship of shape, color and texture.
I love to explore new techniques and materials, which I find joyful and fulfilling.

Enjoy your virtual tour,

Orit
