Liat Summerfield, 31, is an Israeli artist with a unique vision.  Summerfield owns a line of paper products and jewelry called "Clowns & Crowns," inspired by a circus theme. "While studying art, I started building models of small circus tents and houses, and draw characters of clowns and  acrobats, which I connected to the more general theme of travels and wandering and the journey to find a home," she says in an interview to Israelife. "That is why, in my creations there are small figures and characters such as circus tents, which symbolize wandering and alternative life, and houses, which symbolizes stability and belonging.

One other central theme inSummerfield's work is clowns. "They express another way of living, through movement, diversity, colorfulness, and playfulness we all have within and that we all must preserve! That is why I came up with the slogan: Save a Clown. My dream is that people would wear my clowns, and simply add more playfulness to the world."
