Michal Ben Yosef

Canaan Online takes pride in bringing to the notice of its world-wide family of customers, the creative activity of Israel’s leading Judaica artists. Today, many have become household names and their items are collectors’ pieces.


Meet ceramic specialist MICHAL BEN YOSEF who works and breathes - Israel. In the rural area where she lives, plants and animal life provide inspiration for the motifs and colors that are the signature theme of her work. “I look out my studio window,” whispers Michal, “and I’m instantly united with the sacred earth, clay, land of Israel. The land of my nation.”

In the field of Judaica, her art creations express sensitivity for the soul of the Jewish People and its holy texts. Hailing from a family background in print, Michal loves interlacing her subdued motifs with Biblical quotations written in attractive Hebrew typefaces.


All MICHAL BEN YOSEF’s products are handcrafted and kiln-fired, giving them an individual touch and strong durability. With daring creativity, she often leaves a portion of her work unglazed, highlighting the beauty and texture of raw pottery. Her concern for the environment propels her to use only natural paints and glazes with no harmful toxins.


The natural beauty of Michal’s varied collection wordlessly speak of loyalty, durability and love. They are often offered as cherished engagement, wedding, anniversary and housewarming gifts. Michal seamlessly merges tradition with modern life in her Shabbat and holiday collections consisting of candlesticks, salt and pepper shakers, havdallah sets, challah cutting boards, Kiddush cups, challah knives, netilat yadayim wash cups, chanukias, honey dishes and matza trays. She infuses a touch of luck into her large hamsa collection.

Although her products are displayed in museums and galleries all over the world, the authentic expression of Michal’s creativity is in the many homes where her items are enjoyed and appreciated for their timeless beauty and functional use.
