Friends Nili and Eliyahu are arranging a series of sales of artwork from Safed [also known,among many other spellings,as Tzfat] in New York to help artists whose Summer income disappeared in the smoke of war.Well worth checking out.My son Eliav is helping out with the sales,so you can check him out too.As you might notice,I'm not taking part in the event,having decided long ago that shipping ceramics to events like these is just not viable.I also feel strongly that my work is best seen where it was made- in my studio in Safed;that's one of the reasons why I no longer deal with shops or galleries,or take part in fairs around Israel [although I did all of these for many years].In addition to which,I'm just plain lazy.
