About

Michal's Story

My name is Michal Keren Gelman. I live in Israel, on the west Galilee, in a small community located just next to a nature reserve and overlooking at the Mediterranean Sea. I am a wife of a charming jangler, and a mother of 3 kids and a dog.
I started my creative journey, learning jewelry design at the "Bezalel" academy of the arts, at Jerusalem. After graduating I found myself in the theatre world, designing accessories for the stage. It took me about 12 years of searching, traveling, wondering and parenting till I found my home base in clay- It allowed me to express myself with much more simplicity and clarity.
I make Contemporary functional ceramic homeware. I find myself drawn to the functional, but at the same time, I see the material, as touches the evergreen. I am fascinated by this connection.
my ceramic ware is formed by a unique techniques of clay folding, engraving, and silk printing. . Though delicate and so fine looking, the pots are amazingly practical, and can be used anywhere in the kitchen, being oven, microwave, and dishwasher proof.
even though I work on my own, being the designer & maker of my ceramic studio, I try to create the finest, unique quality work.
As a small, one woman show business , I'm committed to provide you gallery quality work , 100% handmade, not using any means of mass production.
I hope to bring beauty to your life, and provide you with things you will love and cherish for a lifetime.

Freefolding is my studio brand .
