Do you see hands praying?
Do you see hands washing?
I believe we’re doing a lot of both these days!
I call this piece “Al Nitilat Yadayim” — the blessing said when we wash our hands.
How could anyone NOT love Frank Lloyd Wright’s use of Ginkgos
in his stained glass work?
Here’s my attempt at a Ginkgo.
I hope Frank would’ve liked it.
I’ve created a number of pieces with Beveled Glass but I’ve decided to include a video of this piece.
The life this brings to the piece is stunning.
(PLEASE CLICK on the lower image.)
My children attended, and now my grandchildren attend the HDS.
I created this piece of stained glass art using the school’s logo.
I’m looking forward to sharing it with the community at the JCC in Ann Arbor.
As far as I can tell, Ann Arbor is the only Jewish Federation
with a stained glass logo.
In keeping with the tradition I started with the other “South Side Gang” celebration, here is my interpretation of “Solly”.
The first photo is of the corner of Solly’s tallit. The rainbow motif moved me to use it as a background for the Shlomo, Solly’s Hebrew name.
Mazal Tov Solly !
Below is the graphic from the invitation to Giliah’s Bat Mitzvah celebration. I love transforming inspirational graphic images into pieces of Stained Glass Art.
And I have the most fun by including the iridescence visible only after dark.
Is there Anyone who doesn’t Love Goldens?
Retrievers are loyal, loving and beautiful.
And my MAC is a prime example, don’t you think?
In these post-election times, it’s incumbent for All to work for Justice
both Day — and Night.
This piece appears quite different in the light of day
— as contrasted with the darkness of night.
If not the Tigers…. Then — GO CUBS ! !
A Bat Mitzvah Gift — For a Very Special Lady
Looking for that Special Gift? — Look No Farther than Ron’s Glass!
Finally I get to post these pieces of glass I created for the Beth Israel 100th Anniversary Gala last night. A special Thank You to Pam Landau and Jeff Bernstein for all the work you did to make the Entire Year such a success.
I took The Iconic LOVE Piece ( I obviously used the iconic Hebrew Ahavah Piece…),
and added a little “flair’.
If you’re interested in viewing this piece, and about 2 dozen more,
check out the Ann Arbor JCC, or the Hebrew Day School,
or Beth Israel Congregation, or the Jewish Family Service of Washtenaw County.
Here’s a new take on the marriage of Yin Yang and Judaism. What better symbolizes the union of complimentary forces that flow into each other? They are interconnected — yet independent. The whole is greater than the individual parts.
And here’s another piece that constantly changes dependent on the light.
Congratulations to Rachel and Jonathan on the anniversary of their wedding… Well, more than the first anniversary! Here’s hoping for many, many more celebrations with our families. Mazal Tov!!
The Ner Tamid – the Eternal Flame a light hanging in front of and above the Ark in every synagogue. It is symbolic of the light of truth and the presence of God.
My Ner Tamid highlights the flame burning from the Heart of Judaism, the two Tablets of the Law.
You too can share this beautiful glass as a unique and meaningful wedding gift.
“But I would feed you with the finest of the wheat,
And with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”
Isaiah 81; 16
I started with the Beveled Glass Pattern —
then it started to grow, and took on a life of it’s own.
Interested in seeing this piece and over a dozen more? Meet me at the Jewish Community Center in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and I’ll take you on a tour.
Until then — enjoy my blog.
The Festival of Lights.
What better way to celebrate than to have the light filter through the beveled glass of a Menorah –
superimposed on a Rainbow?
There are 613 Commandments in the Torah.
Tradition tells us that 10 were etched on the tablets Moses brought down from Mount Sinai.
The Commandments are a Tree of Life for those who follow it’s precepts.
Here, in a single piece, are all those concepts.
Come to the JCC in Ann Arbor to see this piece in person.
I like how the grapes ‘shimmer and shake’ when you walk by this piece.
Come to the JCC to see it in person.
I Love how different this piece looks in my window – in the daylight, and in my window – at night.
For those who don’t understand: The glass in my cover photo is a wedding present for a recently married couple.
I took the first letters of their Hebrew names – and they form the word “Eish” = Fire.
I wanted to show the warmth of their relationship by working with yellows, reds and oranges to represent the Fire of their Love.
Wishing only the best for Ari and Stephanie!
