Jara Studio was founded by artist couple Alon Gil and Batya Margalit, graduates of Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design.
The surrounding environment and lifestyle are a source of inspiration to the creative process.
Alon – ceramics artist, maker of practical and artistic items. He designs and creates projects from stone and clay. The works are then burned in a gas oven and the glaze is made on-site. This results in many unique shades of color in high quality. Alon also has his own commercial line of tiles called Ooka.
Batya – glass artist, graduate of Bezalel’s jewelry department. Batya creates glass artworks with copper, gold and minerals using the glass fusing technique. The burning process in the gas oven gives the glass unique texture and colors. Her works were shown in exhibitions in Israel and overseas
Alon and Batya offer a personal visit to the Studio. Over a pot of wild herb tea, you will learn about art, History, Technology and how all this relate to the life in Clil.
