Upon completing his BA, Kimchi decided to engage full time in what had been until then a growing passion – the art of fine woodworking.
In 1991 Kimchi returned to the States for a year to apprentice at the Jeffrey Greene Design Studio. It’s safe to say that the intense learning experience he had there transformed both his woodworking skills and his outlook as a budding artist.
After the apprenticeship Kimchi returned to Israel and founded his own studio workshop. To this day he shares a special connection with his former mentor, Jeffrey Greene.
Kimchi creates pieces by commission for both the private and public sectors. However, over recent years he has become more sought out as an artist in the unique niche of synagogue furnishings. While Kimchi views every project as an opportunity for growth and artistic perfection, he feels a special sense of significance when creating pieces designed to uplift the spirit.
Kimchi lives in a small community on the edge of the Judean Desert. “I still miss the luscious forests of the Northeast,” he says. “But now the rugged desert landscape that surrounds my home has merged with the scenes of my childhood as a source for my artistic inspiration.”
Kimchi’s uniquely sculpted Torah arks and other furnishings adorn dozens of synagogues both in Israel and the U.S.
