Michal was born in Israel and lived there till the age of 24. Michal moved to the United States to acquire her MBA and start a career in business. For the next seventeen years Michal worked with a variety of successful large companies. In 2008, Michal was introduced to the beauty of Glass Art and in particular, Glass Fusion Art. She was hooked. Michal states “In glass there are many colors, transparencies, shapes, textures and mystery that when I was first introduced to Glass Fusion Art I felt I was home.”
Michal began her journey by founding a company called Simple Touch IL. Simple Touch is a wholesale distributor of fused glass Judaica Products in the US and Canada. Although the growth of Simple Touch has been tremendous, Michal wanted to have a business that could help teach others about the artwork she had so passionately come to love.
The natural next step was to create an educational and production facility where she could teach others the craft and so Fire Glass Studio was created in 2012. Michal goal is to inspire and share her passion for Glass Art with everyone, even those who think they do not have a creative side to them.
Michal commented “It just takes one class and most students walk away as enthused about the art form as I am. Well almost.”
