ABOUT

 

Leo dealt with few objects. The reason is that he undertakes a project only if it is unprecedented.
Not a question of a further decoration, of variation on a theme, of a gimmick.

His research approach to Judaica is a straight result of his scientific background, his projects have to entail entirely new modes:


enhance ritual functions
(inclined parchment mezuzoth, double sided Hannukkah lamp);
originally apply disciplines, such as optics
(anamorphic reflection Kiddush sets) and
topology
("Gradient" Kiddush set);
integrate symbols and ritual
("Gradient" Kiddush set, Magen David mezuzah);
achieve total custom through the integration of ritual and family

("Three Generations" reflection Kiddush set).

 

It has to accomplish its purpose in a direct and possibly stern way, no place being left to embellishment, leisure, curiosity satisfaction.
Quantity and quality hardly go together.

Leo is an artist and it deals with his works as an artist does: either doing them by his hands or performing personal interventions on those which are made as multiples, so as to legitimate his signature and to ensure who acquires them to own an original object.
For this reason you will find Leo’s works exclusively in top-end Judaica galleries and shops.
