Porcelain Judaica and Tableware. Handmade & dishwasher safe. Craftsman inspired, Personalize yours with names or dates.
My work is mostly in porcelain, though I find comfort and inspiration in most any clay and ceramic processes. I have been working in ceramics since high school. Yes I was that kind of kid. Pottery class was supposed to be an easy way out of any hard learning but there I was and it was my first "A" in a class. The classic under achiever had met his match. I soon understood that perseverance would make this into an avocation worth pursuing. After 15 or so years making functional table wares and hand made tile. I got interested in ritual objects. To hold a favorite coffee mug is a ritual object pottery clay moment. To hold a vessel and call on our souls to remember a time of sanctity is the glue that binds the generations together. May it be a mezzuzah, dreidle, seder plate or other Jewish ritual object , I am happy to make a vessel or object for you. Customized with a name or date or image you might want for your special occasion or holiday. Please contact me for pricing and timing.
A maker’s mark, Prairie style architecture started in the Midwest. In researching the possibility of combining Judaica and Prairie styles in a new series of ceramic forms, I have found little if any examples of the mix between Arts and Crafts or Prairie style and Judaica. Being of both worlds I am interested in combining them as both heritages are combined in me and in the community I live in. There is a historical connection between the locale of Jews and that influence on Jewish life and ritual objects. It is very common for the Jewish population to absorb and reflect the culture and aesthetic influences of the majority culture throughout the diaspora. The Prairie architecture so common in my community and surrounding areas is well recognized by many different diverse populations; to add the Judaic aspect to it will hopefully make the two different themes be more accessible to a broader array of personalities.
