And I don't know yet, 

what would I tell my child;

That I am 

his mother

or that 

I am 

Myself.

(Efrat Mishori, a poet)

What would I tell my child, 4 ceramic figures on canvas on found object, 50x16 In (2018)

The complexity of being a woman, a mother and an artist is reflected in this artwork. For me, each identity has a different light and expectations. Each role has its own distinctive voice, which is hidden inside an intimate petal. I chose to use whitestone clay as my material in its natural condition, unglazed, to show the pure vulnerable personal of each identity.
