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.

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.
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!!
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.
This Masterpiece is proudly displayed in the dining room of Matt Kaplan and Caroline Helton. It represents one of the Seven Species.
The Seven Species are seven types of fruits and grains enumerated in the Hebrew Bibleas being special products of the Land of Israel. Jewish tradition teaches that the pomegranate is a symbol for righteousness, because it is said to have 613 seeds which corresponds with the 613 mitzvot or commandments of the Torah. The pomegranate is one of the few images which appear on ancient coins of Judea as a holy symbol, and today many Torah scrolls are stored while not in use with a pair of decorative hollow silver “pomegranates” (rimmonim) placed over the two upper scroll handles. Some Jewish scholars believe that it was the pomegranate that was the forbidden fruit of the Garden of Eden.
