Hutzot HaYotzer 2012 (Arts & Crafts Fair) – Israeli Pavilion
Posted by Avital Pinnick on September 6, 2012
I just realised that I never posted the photos I took at the pavilion of Israeli artists at Hutzot HaYotzer (International Arts & Crafts Fair held every August in Jerusalem). The handbags above are made from plastic wrappers that have been cut into oblongs, folded into continuous chains, and eventually stitched together to make fairly durable bags. These colourful bags are made by Natella. I’ve been working on one at home for ages (here’s a good tutorial). Maybe I should take a hint from Natella and either use bigger pieces or make smaller bags! I’m sure I have enough chains to make at least a glasses case and my family would appreciate not seeing bits of plastic around the house.
Am I the only one who finds miniature food irresistible? Apparently not! These beautifully detailed pieces are by Sweet Art Miniatures.
Unfortunately, I don’t think I recorded the name of the artist who made this lovely chuppah wedding card from cut paper. They were priced so reasonably that they must be laser-cut, not hand-cut.
Lampshades and hearts made from ribbon.
Lighting fixtures with doilies
Mira Raman’s unmistakable acrylic paintings.
Ceramic dishes that look like lettuce leaves. These were on a windowsill in the Bezalel Art School pavilion. I didn’t see anything that I was interested in buying but these dishes were fun to photograph.
