Safed Craft Pottery

UK-born potter Daniel Flatauer works in the English studio pottery tradition, producing tableware, kitchenware and Judaica that is both functional and extraordinarily beautiful. He has one of the only salt kilns in Israel – if you’re not sure what that means, ask him – and also works with fiendishly difficult crystalline glazes. If the door is locked, give him a ring.
