DOMAR Artists is a family-owned ceramic manufacturer that was started by the Israeli-born Pinhas Domovitz who spent several years in Germany in the early 1980's. His earlier experimental works with glass and clay won him recognition by the President of the Union of German Artists, and a second prize for Young Artists.

Pinchas Domowitz was born in 1948 to Israel parents who were both holocaust survivors. From early childhood on he was surrounded by the beautiful stories of his Jewish heritage which he later used for his Judaic creations, using ceramics and sterling silver. Living in the modern state of Israel has inspired him to create contemporary art, especially when commissioned by the Prime Minister's office for various official State gifts.
