i just realized that it’s been more than a year since my last post. so much has happened during that year but at the same time it feels like so little actually changed.
anyhow, i’ve been thinking about coming back to my little slice of heaven. i guess there is no time like now to start sharing with you all the amazingness i’ve discovered in my gap year.
and so, without any further ado, let me introduce you to dorit provizor. my first encounter with dorit’s sandy journey was courtesy of keren shavit’s “island” (aka her annual lifestyle event that took place last summer at the design terminal). i immediately was eyeing one of dorit’s plates (i have a weakness for all things line art and ceramics. duh.) and of course i regretted not buying it on the spot. BUT nothing will never come between me and my desired ceramics. i texted dorit and that’s when our transatlantic love story began. since then, i never miss any of her daily updates on her vibrating instagram account from her jaffa studio. and who doesn’t like to get an inside ticket to the process behind the scenes? dorit has a way with words and stories which connect so seamlessly with her practice. and to think that she began her ceramic journey as an industrial designer who took a nightly ceramics class is what led her to her rolling pin objects.
“my work revolves around playing with clay and examining the interaction between its different earth tones. i celebrate the simplicity of the material, preserving its natural colors and mixing various shades of clay together without the addition of synthetic pigments.”
it is safe to say that dorit is the one making me be more forgiving or dare i say loving of all these earthy tones out there. this post is getting a bit longer than i was intending so let me leave you with dorit’s debut collection (don’t miss the story that documents it all) which is all about everyday rituals. she invites you to adopt a mindset that values the here and now. she is urging you to make time for leisure, no matter what time of day it is. she is asking you to take a moment to enjoy a cup of coffee with a side of cake. at the moment i’m obsessing over her ceramic utensils and only time will tell if i’ll go with the spoons or knives first.
oh and just one last thing, the one behind all these calm as a clam pictures is the mighty tal brushel. a photographer that i’ve fallen for and i can’t get over his effortless talent.
Thank you See you soon
