OHAD TSFATI (Israeli)
Volcano Moon, 2023
Mulberry bark, natural extracts, indigo
Ohad Tsfati is a contemporary Israeli artist who creates sculptural objects from hand-made paper. Employing a method similar to the Japanese technique for creating washi, Tsfati mixes Mulberry bark to create heavily textured paper pulp he then manipulates into different forms to create wall hangings, bowls, and light fixtures. Lastly, the works are pigmented with natural dyes to achieve a richly pigmented surface reminiscent of the natural world from which the works take inspiration.
