Adi Toch (b.1979) completed her MA at the Cass, London, in 2009 following her BA in Jewellery and Objects at the Bezalel Art Academy in Jerusalem. Her work is exhibited internationally and has won prestigious awards including the Gold Award from the Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council.

A recent statement by Adi Toch on her work is as follows: `The practice of making vessels and containers fascinates me as it enables me to work both with metal and space as materials, redefining borders between inside and outside. Through my work I explore the morphological qualities of vessels and the process of embedding functional objects with spirit. I create contemplative work, inviting interaction and communicating through its tactile essence
