JF: To recap our whirlwind four days in Holon and Tel Aviv might best be done through pictures. Our meetings with designers were so engrossing that sometimes I forgot to document what was going on! And as my route was sort of circuitous, via Zurich, due to bad weather, I missed your first day which I know was full.
Visit to Pini Leibovich's studio. What fun to see the much published balloon chair in actuality. The films his students made reveal what a gifted teacher he must be. And his process for writing a book is an art piece in itself.

I forgot to take pictures at our coffee meeting with the design team Reddish.Our hotel offered a pleasant lounge where we could have a few casual meetings.
Galit, in her little red Fiat, zipped us around from meeting to meeting and studio to studio. And, to a most delicious hummus lunch. I'm ready to go back there!

We had a Meeting with Nirith Nelson, Art Director of The Jerusalem Center for the Visual Arts residency, where Marloes ten Bhömer, in our show, will be spending April. What a great confluence.The Meeting took place at Design Museum Holon and introduced us to the museum staff. To meet these e-mail correspondents, putting face to name, makes the work so much more real!

A zoom through The Israeli Cartoon Museum en route into a last flurry of meetings in Tel Aviv.At Shenkar College of Engineering and Design we had a quick tour and saw student work. We peered into a class on the blog as sketch book-a really great idea and use of technology.

Meeting with fashion designers Yael Taragan and Claudette Zorea at a café before zooming off to the airport where we needed every single minute to make it through the lines and security.
