Sites and sounds of Israel
Tsfat has always been a creative town. With galleries lining the streets and painters bent at easels in cobbled alleys, the creative element is thriving here. Aside from strolling through the galleries, visitors should also try their hand at creating art. When in Tsfat, do as the Tsfatis do!
We did this last week at the fused glass gallery of Kathleen Wasserman. An olah from Riverside, California, Kathleen has brought fused glass art to Tsfat and is one of just a few glass artists living in Israel.
Fused glass is created when layers of glass are heated and melted in a kiln, fusing together into beautiful pieces of art. Some pieces can be raised and textured, while others are flat. This beautiful craft is also a great activity for both adults and kids.
mountains, casting a warm orange glow. “Next time you come, bring a bottle of wine to really let your muse come out,”Kathleen suggested. And what a great idea that would be!
Kathleen’s workshop is set up to take groups of children and families and she enjoys passing on her love of fused glass to all. If you would rather buy a beautiful piece directly from this talented artist, Kathleen also offers a lovely selection of plates, dishes and mezuzah covers for sale. Please contact Kathleen to make an appointment or drop by the studio to check out her art.
