Lauri Recanati

From her Atelier bay window overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and the picturesque flee market of old Jaffa, Lauri Recanati is invariably inspired. For the past 8 years she comes to her studio daily, devoted to her work, refining and perfecting her skills and individual methods as a mosaic artist.
Mosaic for Lauri is not merely mastery or an art form but an outlook on life:

''the ability to break things and put them back together in a completely new way and to make broken things live again''

reflects to her something deeply spiritual. In her own way she is a story teller, weaving together the most interesting and unusual objects, like exotic figurines,
broken utensils, coins, Venetian mirrors or buttons from her ever growing collection to spark the imagination and bring magic to everyday life.
