The metal art pieces are created from recycled materials from many areas of life.Vehicle parts, industrial materials, work tools, plumbing pipes and more.Every light fixture is Tomer's figment of his imagination. When he holds the basic materials in his hands he can anticipate the final artistic results.
The idea of creating the "Vee" light table from an engine was born when Tomer visited a junkyard to be inspired as an artist.
Among all the piles of scrap metal, he saw an engine that sparkled like a light in the dark.
The idea of creating "Storm" light fixture started in the backyard of a car garage that Tomer often used when his car needed attention. In the garage there were parts of old engines lying about. He laid his eyes on a piece of an exhaust system, that used to conduit poisonous and polluting gases, discovered the potential of such a piece of scrap metal to create a bright and pleasant piece of art.
The "Light Pipes" creation is a plumbing pipe system with different geometric shapes: a square that changes into triangles and creates a pyramid shape. On top of the pyramid shape there is a burst of light that comes out of pipes in four directions.
In the "Whisks" creation Tomer used a simple hand whisk, that is found in every kitchen.
The simplicity of the materials and the fact that they are on hand emphasize the innovativeness, which makes it a unique and special piece of art.
The "Triple Cone" creation began when Tomer received from his associate a piece of mesh that is used for industrial air conditioning.
He transformed this mesh into a cone shaped light fixture. The composition that he saw in his mind became a reality.
The "Spider" piece was created from different parts of vehicles.
Tomer used a car exhaust system with a unique attention of the body, attached it to a metal tube and installed a car drum brake for the base.
The image that emerges from the light fixture visualizes a spider connected to its prey which gives the viewer a sense of a hanging spider.
"When I hold the basic and natural materials in my hands, just as I do in my profession as a hair stylist, I can anticipate the final artistic results. The satisfaction of such an endeavor stimulates me to create more and more"
