Gur Inbar

Gur Inbar is a ceramicist based in Tel Aviv. He is a graduate of the Ceramics and Glass Department in the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design (2015) and of the First Studio residency program by the Benyamini Center for ceramics (2016). Since 2016 he runs his own studio in the south of Tel Aviv.

The vases Gur makes on the pottery wheel are used as surfaces for his hand-painted graphic work. Many references, taken both from the world of tribal archeological relics and the field of traditional crafts find their way into his designs. His use of color is free and generous and based upon intuition rather than planned. Each of the final pieces is made and painted by hand and thus unique.

Besides vases, Gur makes hand-painted tableware for two of Alain Ducasse's restaurants. Cups, plates, and bowls are made on the pottery-wheel before they're being painted-on, fired, and shipped to Monaco and Doha.

During the last 4 years, Gur has participated in numerous art and design shows including the Fresh Paint Art Fair, in Tel Aviv. His works are being exhibited in some of Tel Aviv design galleries and stores.
