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.
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.
I Love how different this piece looks in my window – in the daylight, and in my window – at night.
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.
