Avital Sheffer's beautiful sculptural vessels are currently being exhibited at the Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery, 2a Conway Street, Fitzroy Square, London.
Sheffer is an internationally-renowned, Australian-based ceramic artist. Her work is inspired by her deep knowledge of the ancient cultural traditions of the Middle Eastern and Mediterranean worlds. Sheffer’s meticulously constructed, hand-coiled vessels, employ a combination of age-old techniques together with her own innovative processes. Surfaces are decorated with delicate layers of stylised imagery and arcane text through a unique printing technique of Sheffer’s own devising. The austere texture of the earthenware is, on occasion, enriched by beads of golden lustre.
Sheffer has achieved an international reputation over the last fifteen years. Born in Israel but now living and working in New South Wales, she has had thirty solo shows and participated in numerous group exhibitions around the world. Her work is held in the National Gallery of Australia, the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, and other significant public, private, and corporate collections in Australia, Europe, USA and the Middle East.
