Resin Vase with rock shape designed by Michal Fargo for PCM Design.
‘Else’ arises from Israeli artist/designer Michal Fargo’s growing interest in finding new and alternative ways to obtain different surfaces. The ROCK project is the result of the will to create and develop different shapes using a basic and intuitive technique. With her bare hands as the only tool, she shreds a block of foam, piece by piece, until the vase is created.
Michal Fargo was born in 1984 in Tel Aviv and has graduated (BFA) from the Bezalel academy of art and design in Jerusalem's ceramic design department in 2011. Since her graduation Michal has been working independently, first as a resident artist at the Benyamini foundation and afterwards in her own studio in Tel Aviv. Michal has also been exhibiting throughout Europe, Australia and Israel. In her studio Michal is experimenting with new techniques and shapes while she tries to develop a personal aesthetic perspective. Her work varies between the definitions of craft and design and has a strong material.
