Special attractions on the way to my workshop

The last day of Passover, a couple of weeks ago,  was a beautiful sunny day. I decided to go and finish off an ordered  necklace in my handmade jewelry designs workshop, but on the way remembered that I was invited to Dvora Diskin's family picnic in her garden, and so I decided to hop in and say hello.

Dvora Diskin is a unique ceramic artist. Her creativity is amazing. When I look around  her garden I am always newly surprised by the vast amount of original items I discover there.  From every corner you can view these stunning ceramic creatures which she has created, and which are set among the flowers and trees there. At first - when you enter the garden you get  alarmed by a group of giant snakes. You relax right away though, as  you realize they are only made of clay! Then you stand there looking at one of the items, and feel someone's eyes staring at your back. When you turn around you find that it has been the stare of beautiful turquoise Iguana .You walk a little further and there is a mask laughing scornfully at your face from one of the walls of her house...

Dvora kindly permitted me to photograph her art and here are a few of her unusual pieces:

 After this unique experience and after enjoying Dvora's coffee, cake and the company of her cheerful family, I left to my workshop to finish what I had in mind and a very fruitful day it was!!
