Originally from Iran, LAVI was my family’s name before my father immigrated to Panama in 1948 and we became LEVY.
I was born in 1962 in Panama City. My life has always revolved around creativity and trespassing the limits of the uncommon. A mother of 6, I use my passion for art to reinvent the ordinary and transform the world around me, featuring a hint of rebellion and persistence for creating the non-existent. My style encourages limitless interpretation that flows and embodies the urgency of my imagination.
My craft lies in the notion of what is and what can be, seeking its point of contact to create an alternate reality as an inspiration for my art. Every object tells a story of life, passion and curiosity for the unknown. I long to shift the perception of ceramics, be it a functional artifact or a mind-blowing sculpture; my modus operandi is based on improvisation and with every new piece a different story unfolds making a valuable contribution to the all-encompassing dimension of art.
