Ronen Kimmel of Nir Israel creates stained glass partitions of all sizes. “We have reservations for children’s roms and synagogues.”
“The red glass causes tension and pressure, but it is important because it gives life,” says Ronen Kimmel, a stained glass artist from Moshav Nir Israel near Ashkelon.
A few years ago when Kimmel (29) was unemployed in Tel Aviv he went to the Labor Office. One of the workers suggested that he work in stained glass. Kimmel went to look and was hurt. He studied the art of connecting glass and after he felt ready he returned to his parents’ home in Moshav Nir Israel and opened a studio. We create stained glass partitions of colored glass in all sizes according to drawings the customer gives us or according to what we offer him. People love this art. The colorful light that penetrates into an amazing and relaxing home, we have the opportunity to have children’s rooms for a synagogue and slums, he says. The price is $ 800 per square meter
Moshav Nir Israel is located very close to the Kfar Silver junction on the road between Kiryat Malachi and Ashkelon, coming from the direction of Tel Aviv: at the Silver Junction, turn to the moshav, open every day from 9 am to 7 pm. Closed Saturday.
The uniqueness of the style is combined with harmonious colors according to the Feng Shui theory, with each color joining shades that give the viewer a pleasant and harmonious feeling.
