Our Studio

Ossy and Lior turned their home into a recycling eco-system of art, where leftovers from practically any material and source become part of the daily landscape for them and for the children. Toys, furniture and even work tools are built from scrap metal, wood, plastic and many other materials.
The studio is located in front of the house, in an open space that connects the house with its' surroundings. A home-made 7'x7' table is used for laying out bottle caps and weaving them into large Pop Art wall carpets.

Work Process - Bottle Cap Portraits
  1. Bottle caps are collected on a weekly basis from various restaurants, sorted, cleaned and stored for use as specific colors.
  2. Then we select an icon for interpretation into bottle caps.
  3. Color palettes art built using bottle caps from stock.
  4. Image is processed and translated into bottle caps using various digital imaging tools and techniques.
  5. Sketched are printed (we usually design more than one option for each icon in terms of color, size and form).
  6. The best sketch is selected.
  7. Bottle caps for each color are counted and taken from stock.
  8. 4 holes are drilled in each bottle cap.
  9. Bottle caps are arranged into rows on the work table.
  10. Each row is connected using recycled communications wire.
  11. After all rows are ready, columns are connected as well. 
  12. Picture is straightened tightened.
  13. All wired are tied and cut.
  14. A metal frame is built according to image size and need.
  15. Metal frame is "sewed" to the back of the using recycled communications wire.
  16. And that's all :)
