Adi TochBorn: 1979
Adi Toch’s practice as a metalsmith centres on making engaging vessels and containers that investigate colour, movement, sound and tactility. Following a BA in Metal at Bezalel Art Academy in Jerusalem, Adi completed an MA at the Cass, London in 2009. Her work is exhibited internationally and has won prestigious awards including the Gold Award from The Goldsmiths’ Craft and Design Council in 2013. She was recently shortlisted for The Loewe Craft Prize and won a 2017 Wallpaper* Design Award. Adi is currently a lecturer at The Cass in London and a visiting lecturer at Bezalel Art Academy in Jerusalem.
'Vessels convey a story of gathering, holding, storing – from edge to edge and through a division of inside and outside they form boundaries between material and space. Pouring vessels have the duality of being able to both absorb and give.' Adi Toch, 2017.

Victoria & Albert Museum, London; National Museums Scotland, Edinburgh; Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge; Applied Arts Collection; The Jewish Museum, New York; Crafts Council permanent collection, London; The Goldsmiths’ Company, London; Turnov Museum, Czech Republic; and The National Museums Wales, Cardiff.
