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!
This piece drew the most interest at the Celebrate Israel event this weekend. Many people commented they could visualize this glass hanging in their dining room as the Shabbat candles were lit. The warmth from the flames of the agates, the animation of the design, the mellow cherry wood frame adds to the Sabbath atmosphere. Interested in this piece?
