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.)
Each Piece of fused glass in this mobile represents the Birthstone of a Special Month in Mira and Doron’s lives.
Doron’s birthday and Mira and Doron’s Wedding in September is the beautiful Sapphire.
Peridot is Matan’s birthstone for August.
Mira’s birthday is in June represented by Alexandrite. These gemstones are extremely rare and desirable since they change color based on the lighting.
Shai’s birthday in March is celebrated by the Aquamarine.
And finally there’s Judah, whose November birthstone is Topaz!
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.
I Love how different this piece looks in my window – in the daylight, and in my window – at night.
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!
