Who we are
High-tech meets fine art in this collection of jewelry and Judaica by the Israeli born artists, Nachshon Peleg and Stavit Allweis. They are both graduates of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. Their work brings together complementary skills from the fields of Industrial Design and Fine Art. They utilize a proprietary technique mating steel, paints, resin and found objects in combination with hand-painted acrylics to create their one of a kind works of art.
Materials & Technique
The artists start with a precision cut stainless steel frame. Within this frame, the design is hand painted with acrylics, metallic pastes and other water based paints. A variety of materials from metals and glass to dyed organic seeds and found objects are assembled within. Semi-precious stones, and Swarovski crystals are embedded and a thick layer of acrylic resin is poured to encase and protect the finished piece. Finally, after several days of curing, the piece is polished, twisted, glued and assembled with
other items to form the finished work of art.
