Lior and her husband Barak met in New York City and traveled around the world for several years. Upon their return to Israel Lior studied Jewelry Designing while Barak studied Blacksmith, and was a student of an Israeli blacksmith master. Later on their artistic road intersected and they are now working and creating together as they bring their diverse influences into one creation.
Lior Gluska likes to combine opposite ends of the art spectrum such as Mediterranean design with compemporary craft. In her tzedakah box she used bright red paint, brass and metal to create a unique contrast for her Tree of Life design, which features a dove of peace at the top.
