Tal Hadar & Roy Yahalomi, designers-makers, have been working together on joint projects since 2010 and opened the Yahalomis studio in 2014. Roy, graduate of the Industrial Design department at the Holon Institute of Technology, and Tal, graduate of the screen based arts department at the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, are a married couple who aim to combine their different backgrounds and aspire to create beautiful, meaningful, and functional products for the contemporary home. Past exhibitions the studio took part in include the 8th Biennale for Israeli Ceramics at the Eretz Israel Museum in Tel Aviv (2016).
“As designers-makers, currently living and working in Tel-Aviv, we focus on the working process with materials, developing different materials and working techniques. Our work consists of designing, and creating handmade products from quality materials we create in the studio, as we create our own clay, and our own ceramic colors. One of our original materials is the Lava rocks clay; we grind local Basaltic rocks from the north of Israel, and turn them into a casting material, with it we make our Lava rocks collection of products, where you can find our Salt and Pepper shakers set. We put a lot of attention in the little details of our products, in order to create beautiful handmade ceramic pieces with high-end finishes.”
