“Ceramics is an art field that has undergone periodical changes, shifting from an appearance of glittering perfection and technological prosperity to the rawness of simplicity, even to the point where the clay seems tired and overused. It is this very quality of the material, this ability to provide a huge range of effects, this lack of identity and versatility, that most intrigue and fascinate me”, says Rosenberg Nir. “I am greatly interested in the many possibilities of conceptual expression this material makes possible, as well as the search for these possibilities”. 
 “Nature is immense and complex, but it is not impermeable to the intelligence; we must circle around it, pierce and probe it, look for the opening or make it” - Primo Levi, The Periodic Table
