Tell me a little bit about yourself. My name is Orly Pittel, I’m 44 years old, married and a mother of 3 beautiful children. I’m from Israel. In the past 8 years we live in a moshav (village) and I just love it. Since I remember myself, even as a child in my parent’s house, creation was always there. My parents had a factory for knitwear, which sold all over Israel. I understand today that my attraction to the handmade creation field started back then. Over the years I have tried working with different materials and techniques, but once I tried ceramic – I fell in love!
Creating ceramic art ware became one of my passions. It’s a wonderful feeling to take a lump of clay with no shape or color and turn it into a personal, lively and unique creation. This kind of creation offers me endless possibilities. I enjoy creating sculptures, jewelry, functional and decorative items. I like to combine in my ceramic work other materials from the nature, such as rocks, wood, glass and more.
How did you start to sell on Etsy?
In the past I sold my work to friends, but due to increasing demand and friends recommendations I decided to open my Etsy shop, and I got hooked! I love the exposure, support and the wonderful atmosphere in this new world. I opened my first shop www.orlydesign.etsy.com exactly one year ago; almost all items in this shop are for weddings, which I’m so excited when someone chooses one of my creations for their big day! I customize my creation for specific bride and groom, you can choose a style, colors, letters or almost anything that will suit best your wedding design. I just love the feeling to be a little part of this special day!

What gives you inspiration?
My work is often inspired by themes from the nature and I enjoy incorporating other materials, particularly those found in nature, in my pieces. You can find me collecting pieces from the nature like beach stones, sea shore rock, sea glass, braches and whatever who makes my imagination to see how a little stone can become an art piece….
