Words from the artist:|
I have been woodworking for over 30 years and my collection of beautiful wood bits
continues to grow. I never want to throw away even the smallest scrap. Re-purposing is a big
part of my work. My mosiac technique developed in part because of the ever growing piles of
beautiful wood bits in my shop. It gives me a way to share the beauty of wood with you!
The mosaic technique I developed shows off the beautiful grain of each wood type and
lets you experience the different grains, patterns and colors of each different wood.
And because each piece of wood is different, every creation made with Etz-Ron mosiacs
is unique and one of a kind.
Recently I have started to work with metals as well, sometimes combining them with
wood, sometimes not. Like with
wood, the patterns and textures interest me, and my pieces reflect combinations of
textures and materials.
You will also see more turned objects and carving and pyrography as well.
About the work:
The beauty behind my designs is that they highlight the woods' natural colors
and the contrasts between the colors and textures among the different woods. No stains
or dyes are used.
Etz-Ron wooden creations add warmth and beauty to your home. Many Etz-Ron products
encompass the Jewish calendar, adorning the Jewish home and enhancing the Mitzvah
experience, for Shabbat and the Holidays.
My work has been displayed throughout America and is in private collections
worldwide, and can be purchased on line or at my studio store in Beer Sheva.
