Artist: Mira Maylor

  • Mira Maylor is a glass artist and sculptor working in her own studio in Tel Aviv, Israel. Her work varies from monumental public art for architecture with commissions worldwide, to smaller art works for private collectors. Some of the work is glass only – like the glass wall of the synagogue of the presidential residence, Jerusalem. Other works combine glass with different materials like the work at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem. The glass techniques used are also very different and vary from hot glass to cold glass techniques.

    Mira is included in several important art collections along side solo and group exhibitions throughout the world. Her work includes, through a timeless point of view, the local Israeli culture alongside a dialogue with the conscience mechanism of symbolism on different levels.
    These things are apparent in her public works such as:
    “Let There Be Light” at the Israeli President Residence and the work “Secrets” at the Hebrew University Mount Scopus Jerusalem.
    Her works are meaningful and yet have some motifs that could be interpreted in more than one way. In her eyes that is the secret of glass: the ability to give different and sometimes opposite impressions or appearances, mainly due to its magical ability to contain light and let it go through a paradox in itself
