In many traditions and in everyday life Light is Life…. Levy wanted to combine this idea with the story of catching the light in a water bucket, from which I got the inspiration for the Well. Arik Levy, who already experimented working with ceramic, sees this material as both magical and very primitive. The material’s raw aspect, its endless shaping possibilities and the fact that one cannot foresee what will come out of the oven, are what attracted Levy in working with it. The dialog Arik was able to establish with the ceramic expert who manufactured the WellOfLife pieces was an important part of the creation process. The interaction between the material’s texture and the color, that becomes «liquid» when set in the light, makes each piece look as if it were in constant evolution. The mat dark gray (elephant skin color) outside and the smooth yet strong colored enamel inside create the contrast Levy was looking for and bring color into space : a soft color reflection will drop on the walls, while the ceiling will get a white light.
Enjoy the magic !
