Papercut Roses

  Entering into a second marriage, this couple was interested in acknowledging their new blended family and chose to represent themselves and their five children with one papercut rose each.   The non-traditional, all English text of this document indicates a direction that some people are taking when dipping into a two thousand year old formula and finding a personal voice. Papercut art has a long history in the Jewish world, and this use of an Arts and Crafts architectural format and color palette in a meaningful Jewish document is in perfect keeping with the way in which ketubah art has always offered a snapshot of Jewish life set in time and place.  After the design of such a papercut work, the most painstaking part of the execution is in fitting the color behind the piece.  With only thin lines separating segments, the painted colors must be cut and set in on the back of the work with meticulous care. I work with a wide range of lettering styles (referred to as ‘hands’) in both Hebrew and English.   This had is a modernized form of Carolingian English lettering, which seems to work well with the overall...

Ketubah of the Cosmos

About-to-be world travelers and visionary activists, this couple had a very clear ‘look’ in mind, but left the details to me.   The background painting was built up with multiple washes of watercolor until the saturation of color was deep enough to hold the white lettering.  Gold leaf applied to a splattering of gesso added just the right touch to the depth of rich color. This is really a very simple piece but spectacular because it is vivid and deep.  The watercolor was ‘worked’ on the surface while wet to create unusual textures and...

Star Ketubah

A precious piece of jewelry at bride’s late grandmother had given her became the inspiration for ketubah. It is simple silver star with each six segments slightly raised on edge to catch light. The effect something like pinwheel. Because the couple wanted spectrum of color, decided to divide the star into twelve segments more subtle color changes. Then the issue of math raised it head. After engaging my spouse’s number skills and watch pages fill with formulas to answer the question about fitting the text exactly into the star shape, I decided to tackle it myself. I wrote out the entire text, and then cut it up into sections and shifted the pieces around until I had a star filled with snippets of text. That gave me the dimension of star and the letter height and spacing using. This ketubah was one ever crafted in total silence. No books on tape, no favorite music, no nothin’! These changes around the spectrum often split individual letters into two, and closer to center, even three different colors per letter, so I could leave nothing to chance. It took total concentration to move those words around the rainbow! best of wholesale aaa replica watches silver ware how can companies make rolex replica can diego colt gmt mens luxury replica red breitling watches superocean gmt putting real incabloc in rolex root beer replica luminor swiss vs replica rolex klockor same weight who sells waterproof great fakes united...
