About

zulasurfing studios was started in 2004 by Gil Tsafrir, Irena Tsafrir came in to the picture shortly thereafter, when their passion for the arts brought them together. Although they were from 2 different worlds and with 2 different specialties (glass and metal work), they became one. Today zulasurfing is the marriage of these 2 diverse individuals and their individual talents.

gil works from a glass studio where he uses a glass kiln to make fused dichroic glass pendants and kiln casting art. he developed a special technique to create a line of jewelry that features symbols of his passion for the beach, and the ocean. his work includes all the beautiful glass work you see as well as the beach jewelry we all love.

Irena fell in love with jewelry making and the arts in undergrad school when she enrolled in arts and crafts. but it would be a while before she jump all in. she started with stringing and wire wrapping and expanded into metal-Smith.
when gil and irena got together they combined their talents and crossed over, where Irena started to incorporate glass into her work and gil started to work with metals. together they try to bring beautiful handmade pieces of wearable art.

Starting with our collection we hope to soon expand our studio to be able to produce more functional and contemporary art in glass and metal.
