Uri's work involves finding relationships and meanings among three distinct modes of production: the hand made, industrial, and digital. As a craftsman, passionate about glass, I am compelled by hand-made objects and the skills required to produce them. As a technician, my interest in manufacturing and fascination with the tools of industry drives many of my conceptual and aesthetic choices. As a technophile, I am also drawn to the potentiality of the digital domain to expand the scope of human endeavors. In this way I strive to illuminate the subtle and often mutually exclusive delineations between the temporal and the atemporal, the physical and the ethereal, the tangible and the intangible.
