An installation of various ceramic containers - hybrids of vessels, human organs ( heart, liver, eyes), and plants - all arranged as a planetary system, surrounding a large ceramic container inspired by the Lacrimatory - an ancient vessel believed to be used for collecting tears. The installation is inspired by Johannes Kepler's (17th-century astronomer) optic studies and his series of anatomical sketches of the human eye, resembling ceramic vessels. The sculptures are connected to the human lacrimatory system from emotional, medical, and philosophical aspects. Documented at the “Hand Built” exhibition, Herzliya Museum of Contemporary Art.
