Selected Works

Mira Maylor is a glass artist and sculptor working in Tel Aviv, Israel. In her unique sculptures she explores the glass as material, and its relationships with iron, wood and light. Maylor’s works, which vary from few centimeter sizes to a few meter monumental works, is to see in public buildings, such as: The Israeli president official residence; the Hebrew University, Jerusalem; Ichilov Hospital, Tel Aviv, and more. She won the third price of the international competition for the landscape planning of “Hiriya”, and created many site-specific works for privet houses and office-buildings. Her current exhibition at Bernard Gallery, “Home”, is a selection of recent work dealing with the notion of home, and the variety of feelings and views attached to it, going back and forth from the closest circle of the self to the wider circle of family, culture, nation and the human race.
Mira is included in several important art collections alongside solo and group exhibitions throughout the world. Her work includes, through a timeless point of view, the local Israeli culture alongside a dialogue with the conscience mechanism of symbolism on different levels. Her works are meaningful and yet have some motifs that could be interpreted in more than one way. In her eyes that is the secret of glass: the ability to give different and sometimes opposite impressions or appearances, mainly due to its magical ability to contain light and let it go through a paradox in itself.
