Let Us Strengthen One Another

Film producer Nancy Spielberg was presented with this hand-made papercut at a screening of her film “Above and Beyond” – the previously untold story of the intrepid handful of young fliers who returned from WWII and shipped off to the fledgling state of Israel in 1948 to establish the country’s first air force.  The papercut captures the color scheme of Ms Spielberg’s promotional materials and the sense of dry desert sand, swirling around the planes.  The effect was produced by sifting pastel chalk onto a heavily textured mat board and blending the colored powders.  The words spell Hazak, hazak, v’nithazek – Be strong, be strong, and let us strengthen one...

Donor Recognition and Tribute Book

L’dor va’Dor is the appropriate title of this book to honor donors and the names that appeared on plaques in a previous synagogue building which was destroyed by fire.  The wooden book was fabricated in Maine by Welch USA, and I quilted and painted the fabric insert.  The exterior brass binding seen below was crafted to match a border design that I developed for the main donor recognition wall. Shown here prior to being stretched and mounted into the wooden frame, this quilted silk was put together in a palette that matches the new building in which it is placed.  The words ‘L’dor vador’ (Generation to generation) are painted in gold with copper accents, and embellished with small clusters of Czech beads at the ‘waistlines’ of the letters....
