Avital Sheffer grew up in Israel and migrated to Australia in 1990. Her extraordinary ceramic forms are inspired by her investigation into her Middle Eastern and Jewish heritage. Incorporating ideas from ancient ceramics, glass, metalware and calligraphy, Sheffer’s vessels exhibit a personal and cross cultural engagement with the landscape and languages of that part of the world. Her work is represented in many collections including the National Gallery of Australia, Powerhouse Museum and Manly Art Gallery and Museum.
