About

Free Folding's Story

My name is Michal Keren Gelman. I live in Israel, in the Beautiful Galilee (northern part), 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, in 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 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 dishes, I try to create the finest, unique quality work.
As a small, one-woman show business, I'm committed to providing you with gallery quality work, 100% handmade, not using any means of mass production.

I hope to bring beauty to your life and table and provide you with things you will love and cherish for a lifetime.

Free folding is my studio brand.

you are most invited to visit my shop at any time, and I am here to assist with anything you might need.
Best Regards
Michal

Care instructions

All of my dishes are oven, dishwasher, and microwave safe.
The dishes are fired to 1200 C degrees, and I prepare all of the glazes by myself.

you can use them all as cooking pots (yes, even the little cups).

To avoid Thermal shock, take them out of the oven and place them over a neutral surface, like wood, or a towel.

Hand-washing will be always preferred for any handmade clay piece, but it is not necessary :)
