Original, Bold, Creative, Metal and Ceramic Art
My story

Born in Israel in 1946, with B.Sc. and M.Sc. in chemistry from Bar-Ilan University, a PhD in Chemistry from the Weizmann Institute, and two years post doctorate at Northwestern University, I am a chemist, with longstanding interest in art. Over the past 45 years, my research has demonstrated originality, expertise, leadership, training, and motivation. I have both academic and industrial experience. I first studied pottery at the Rochester Art Gallery, where I mainly worked on hand-built structures. There, my fascination with the unique creativity offered by glazing resulted is the blue pieces below. In 1994 After moving to Brooklyn I continued my education in pottery in a private studio, continuing to develop my hand building techniques. From 2009 to 2011 I joined The Art Student League, and studied metal sculpturing, concentrating on building sculptures using welding techniques. Currently, I am a member of Choplet Studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Currently, I am a member of Choplet Studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. My scientific work has produced over 200 peer reviewed papers, 7 patents, one authored book, six edited books. My citation index in Google Scholar shows 36,000 citations, h-index 68, and i10-index 163.
