Batia Wang

Textile, Fashion & Jewerly Design

“I create volumetric bodies and treat their surfaces. My material is 18 carat gold or 24 carat pure gold, and design for me is a language that has evolved over the years, a language whose rules cannot be formulated verbally. In my work, the object/jewel emerges from the material and into the idea".

Jewelry designer Batia Wang has a master’s degree in art from the University for Applied Arts, Vienna and a bachelor’s degree from Beit Berl College Faculty of Arts – Hamidrasha. She cofounded the Jewelry Design Department at Shenkar College of Engineering, Design and Art and is now a senior lecturer there. In previous years she taught at the University of Haifa, the Open University of Israel, and the International Summer Academy in Salzburg, Austria.

Wang was nominated for the 2022 Edmond de Rothschild Design Award for Established fashion, textile, and jewelry designers.
