Rafi Ajl

After 22 winters on the east coast, Rafi made his escape. Following a love of all that is wild, he settled into Northern California, where he has made his home and practice. Rafi has been making and taking apart things as long as he can remember, learning to sew first from his artist mother, broadening ultimately to landscapes, bicycles, houses, and furniture and quality goods for the home.
