Yehuda HaLevi Poem

This poem by Yehuda HaLevi was commissioned by parents knowing it is their son’s favorite poem.  It was commissioned as a graduation gift.  I studied several printed versions of the poem, each laid out slightly differently, and then contacted professor Max Tiktin to help me go through the words line by line to parse the meaning and determine the best way for the words to be laid out on the page. This is papercut from one sheet and mounted over a watercolor background.

Seven Species Giclee Print

The seven Biblical species:  wheat, barley, pomegranates, grapes, figs, dates, and olives fill the oval mat in their natural colors and beauty.  Each element of the original painting is built up of many layers of transparent watercolor so that they achieve a brilliant luster and depth. The process of Giclee printing, a one-at-a-time production on the finest watercolor paper with archival inks, captures the full beauty of the original painting.

Dickinson College Torah Mantles

Dickinson College Torah Mantles When the Hillel at Dickinson College acquired a building on campus, a chapel was planned and furnished with a commissioned ark and reader’s table crafted by Gary Rosenthal.   I was hired to design and craft two Torah mantles and a wimple.  I first worked with student members of the Hillel to brainstorm colors and designs and then developed these two.  Crafted of Dupionne silks, with glass beads and mirror embellishments, the mantles are a perfect fit for the copper colored and dazzling glass Torah ark. Each of the colors represented in the silk designs is found in the ark.   Sewing techniques include crazy quilt piecing, trapunto, applique, and embroidery.  The panels were made fit the Torahs as each Torah has a specific length and thickness when rolled. The wording on the Torah to the left means, “It’s [Torah’s] way are ways of pleasantness and all of it’s paths are...

For Your Sake Papercut

Commissioned by a Jewish dayschool as an award, the intricate design makes use of the most delicate lines to hold the papercut together.  Notice  the fine lines of the tsitsit and the tallit itself, and the rays of light from the ner tamid.  Once I had the visual elements in mind, the challenge was to craft an overall pleasing design, so the long narrow image developed. I found the text in a museum exhibit of poster art from the time of early Israeli statehood.   The particular poster that grabbed my attention was urging new immigrants to learn Hebrew.   Notice the different ways in which the Hebrew and English letters remain attached within the artwork.  As a papercut design, everything that appears black in the artwork (positive space, as this is the paper that remains while the rest is cut away) must be attached to other black paper or else it will fall away....
