"In creating this piece I wanted to achieve a feeling of movement and a floating sensation. I wanted it to look alive." Elisha Rubinoff

About the Artist:

Elisha Rubinoff was born in Kibutz Galon in the south of Israel. At twelve, he moved with his mother to live in Moshav Timorim, where he still resides today, with his family. As a child, Elisha loved to play with wood-carving and being a curious, he learned a lot about different materials and different technologies.
He taught himself what things are made of, or as he puts it, "I dismantled anything I could lay my hands on…." Through experimentation, he learned many techniques and processes.

After serving in the army, Elisha traveled to England where he worked in conservation and restoration of old buildings, gaining experience in wood work: restoring, fixing and repairing wooden windows, doors and floors, restoring roofs with wooden components, all while conserving their antique design and color. Upon returning to Israel, he established a home-building business.

Throughout all these years, along with creating a family and a company, Elisha created wooden art. Elisha always aspired to create non-standard art, never seen before, drawing his ideas from a wild imagination, not limited by implementation. His ability to visualize and plan a piece in his head before starting to work allows him to foresee the steps needed for the creation, in the right order, and to create complex art.

About 10 years ago Elisha started teaching woodturning in a workshop he established in his home.
