About the Artist

Oritt Landau Born in Jerusalem, Oritt Landau lives and creates in Haifa.

An eighth generation Israeli and a descendant of Yoel Moshe Salomon, one of the foundation-builders of the settlement of Israel. She is married with two children and has a degree in Economics.

About 17 years ago she discovered the magic of the world of glass and completed courses in stained-glass and in hot-glass, courses in drawing and painting with the artist Dr. Zvika Israel.

Oritt works with stained-glass and hot-glass and also combines special pieces of glass in the stained-glass compositions, that she creates in the Kiln in her workshop: slumping, fusing and also cast glass.

Oritt took courses with international glass artists: sand-casting with Boris Shpeizman, and Pate-de-verre with Silvia Levenson.

Oritt achieves unique, multicolored textures in her glass compositions, while contending with the actual glass without drawing on it.

A member of the Israel Miniature Art Society and the Visual Artists Association, Israel.

Her works are on display in private and public locations.
