My Night and Day Judaica range marks a new direction for me as these are the first pieces I’ve produced in ceramics; it comprises of Shabbat candlesticks and a Kiddush cup.
After almost 30 years as a silversmith, I decided to try designing in a different material. The design came easily to me, (they usually do!) but the production was a great challenge as producing in metal is so different from working in clay. Sometimes I feared it wouldn’t work and that the whole line would be impossible. It was an investment of time and the soul as I was already set on releasing the design so I had to make it work. There were occasions I had to turn my brain inside out, think laterally, meditate, sleep on it and hope for a solution in my dreams.
And in time, it all came together, and I’m delighted to reveal to you Night and Day, influenced by Art Deco and inspired by the rhythm of changing light as day becomes night. The contrasting black and white cones reflect the opposites of day and night, heaven and earth, sun and moon. The cones are joined by a ring of precious metal lustre and the glaze is made of actual gold or platinum, resulting in a deep and vibrant glow. Each piece is individually hand made in high-quality ceramics and features my signature.
