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.
UM – OSU this Saturday.
UM hasn’t won in The Horseshoe since 2000!
Don’t you think it’s finally our turn? Can Harbaugh make it happen?
We’ll find out soon….
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.
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.
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 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!
I took a simple beveled glass sailboat, placed it in shimmering iridescent water, for the sky I chose a glass filled with a fresh breeze, and voila – Sail Away With Me!! Sound like a plan??
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!
