Jewish ceremonial art is the most effective medium for spreading a facet of culture in Israel. Every home, whether religiously observant or secular, has Sabbath candlesticks or a Hanukah lamp. Few of the owners of such items are art collectors or artists, yet most of them are keen on their beauty. It is the designer’s role to introduce them to new attitudes regarding form, proportion, harmony and textures.
Jewish Art Online is pleased to present a collection of the artist’s works below. If you do not find precisely what you desire, the artist will be glad to create a commissioned work for you specification. Please contact us for more information.
