Anna Carmi

“I was born in Moscow in 1968. Since the time of my first memories, my parents have supported and nurtured my love of painting. When I grew up, I chose the medium of ceramics;mixing childhood dreams with the Oriental atmosphere of Jerusalem, the city where I had the fortune to create and to start a family. A lot of time passes since the moment when raw clay starts its journey towards becoming an object to covet. Many pair of hands caress it, adding meaning and color to the vessel. Until it is complete, each piece undergoes atleast four firings. During this process, the object accumulates the atmosphere and the intention dominating the workshop at that time, a story for the object to tell the person whose heart will open for it.”
