Aba Tells Me a Story


These works fuse clay with fabric, wire, and screen-printed Hebrew scripts. Consisting of bonded and reiterated elements, they reflect on the basic human need to connect and nature’s malleable way of reproduction. Clay vessels are emblems of our primal necessities, as containers for carrying food and water. In these distinctive works, they are also carriers and supporters of delicate porcelain parchments inscribed with sacred prayers and cherished handwritten words.

Potent yet delicate these works present ideas of personal, cultural, and historical significance. Relating to my place of origin, Israel, they convey a transcendence of time, evoking the wish to comfort and protect, to nestle and embrace. To keep the perishable timeless.
