The commission was for a simple Hamsa. I was told glass was to be red and white. I began by placing a silver filigree hamsa in the center. When I drew the diamond shape, it looked like a Ner Tamid – with the fingers of the hamsa as the flame. The blue iridescent Magain David completes the piece. During the day the flame shines. At night, all one sees is the blue mirrored reflection of the Star of David. I hope it finds a nice home!
May the warmth of family and friends bring light to you and yours this Thanksgiving / Chanukah.
