New at the HUC-JIR Judaica Gallery

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

California-based ceramic artist Susan Duham Felix creates one-of-a-kind works that employ the forms and themes of ancient Judaic ceremonial objects in ways that are relevant to contemporary life.  Her "Shabbat Candle Holder," marked by the processes of pit-firing and smoke-firing in earthy, desert-like colors, includes both Hebrew and English text, stating “Arise, shine, for your light has dawned.”
