Shir Taube - Cement and papier-mâché sculpture

Shalom. My name is Shir and I live in Mitzpe Ramon, in the Negev Highlands of Israel with my dear family for the past 16 years.

I am married to Nadav and together we raise our three wonderful boys.

We moved to Mitzpe Ramon because we felt that living here will do us good and that this is where we belong. Today, after all these years, I know that this is true!

The quiet tranquility, the separation from the madding crowd and the calm and serene way of life here in the desert is what gives me the inspiration and place to create.

I have always, as long as I can remember, been involved with art.

During the past few years my main occupation has been sculpturing in papier-mâché and useful artistic creations with cement.

My love for creativity can best be seen in my work and the final creations which always have a personal touch.


While sculpturing, the artist comes into contact with matter, discovers its characteristics, develops self-confidence and can "sail away" with his imagination.

My love and connection with creativity has accompanied me all my life…

For this I am eternally grateful.
