Mask Vase – Bull With Horns
Ear-rings and all, this handcrafted, colorful and sophisticated ceramic vase is as much a piece of sculpture as it is a functional vase. A humorous interpretation of a very satisfied bull with horns, the vase is a perfect blend of art, form, and function. Its color and whimsy will add design to any setting. Accented with gold leaf, the head of the bull sits atop a depiction of the world: fish at the base, the Earth and its animals, and birds at the top. The five earrings, one in gold leaf, can be worn in whatever fashion the bull prefers! Signed by Israeli artist Dori Schechtel Zanger.

Meet the Artist: Dori Schechtel Zanger
Dori Schechtel Zanger was born in Argentina and moved to Israel in 1983, where she studied at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. One of Israel's preeminent ceramic artists, Dori's sculptures and functional art tell extraordinary stories.
In Dori's own words: "All that surrounds me, exits me and influences me eventually shows up in my work.
I have always been fascinated by the ability of the ceramic work to tell a story. Images upon a three dimension object give me a visual language to communicate speechlessly with the viewer." Dori's work is exhibited in museums and fine galleries throughout the world.
