On Etsy since 2013

Twist Your Reality

Since I can remember myself I was always attracted to light passes through the color, symmetrical forms and changing colors.
As a child I lived in Kenya, and friends of my parents was a dealer in precious stones, I remember sitting hypnotized when I saw the rings of stones his wife was wearing, I was fascinated by flashes of light ring formed.
When I was seven. I draw on glass with transparent colors, mandalas and symmetrical examples. I sold the paintings to friends of my parents, it was my first handicraft business :) Then as a teenager I started taking pictures, and here I was attracted especially to photo shoot light and the changing reality.

At the age of 20 I started studying architecture at the university. During school I was exposed to a lot of creativity and arts and crafts materials. One of my projects was working with mirrors. There began my connection to kaleidoscopes, when I made my first kaleidoscope and really fell in love with it.
I created a small series of kaleidoscopes, and walked around with them in galleries in Israel. People really liked them and i got positive feedback!

I studied more and more in the creation of kaleidoscopes, and traveled to conferences in the United States of artists and collectors kaleidoscopes, where I was exposed to further methods and diverse construction of kaleidoscopes. I returned to Israel with a deep insight, my greatest love is creating kaleidoscopes! I left my architecture studies, and since 1994, I mainly create kaleidoscopes.

I think a kaleidoscope doing good for the soul, develops the imagination and relaxing. Viewing through a kaleidoscope, has a healing quality and can be used for meditation.

I am grateful that thank's to Etsy people around the world can enjoy my kaleidoscopes!

In April 2020 After many years of dreaming about it, I fulfilled my dream, I left Tel-Aviv and moved my home and my studio to Kibbutz Ein Gedi, which is an oasis on the banks of the Dead Sea in southern Israel. Now i live close to nature, where i have a lot of inspiration to create my kaleidoscopes.

You can also find at Arts and Crafts fair, Nachlat Binyamin st. Tel Aviv, Israel.
The fair is open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10:00 to 17:00. Our stall located at No.15 Nachlat Binyamin st.

Yours, Roy:)
