Philly Blue Ketubah

Very simple guidance here – blue color, papercut, a passage from Song of Songs, and images of beloved Philadelphia… And here it is. Oh, darn, I should have added a pretzel with...

Peacocks in Their Favorite Places Ketubah

When a couple provides a carefully curated list of images for a ketubah design, I am usually very, very happy because it activates my ‘now make this all hang together beautifully’ energy.  Here’s a great example. We have two skiers, an apple tree, favorite house plants, collected stone critters, lake, beach, mountain, a Yiddish verse… and intricately hand-cut and colored peacocks.  The wonder of art is that we can pretend that all the seasons live happily together on one the page!  What...

Collaborative Two-Part Ketubah

  A challenge in this time of upended expectations came to me in the guise of a printed document that needed embellishment.  Early in the pandemic, this couple chose to marry in a tiny ceremony at a very carefully chosen woodland site in Maine.  With a text already completed and access to photos, I was able to recreate the setting in a ‘frame’ around the print:  the huppah, bridal bouquet, site of their engagement and dinners, and reference to the garlic scapes, bicycles, and landscape of the beautiful setting of the wedding.  A bit of papercut art breaks through the frame and connects the bouquet to the central text.  With so much taken away in isolation, this work of the heart is a step towards honoring that great strange day.  Mazal tov!  ...

Kente Cloth and Papercut Marriage Document

Kente Cloth and Papercut Marriage Document

There are times when the blending of families and cultures leads to a synergy where the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts.  This document offers a glimpse into one of those magical meldings.  The groom’s father is Ghanaian and the traditional wedding pattern of his home region’s  woven kente cloth became the painted border of this piece. The traditional Jewish papercut art and text in modern Hebrew center the document as part of the centuries-old custom of beautifying the marriage contract with artwork.  There are four small Adinkra symbols which are Ghanaian symbols representing unity/human relationships, love/harmony, cooperation/interdependence, and safety/security. The rich colors are created with gouache – an opaque water-based paint that was a pleasure to work with on this piece. Sharp knives, sharp pencils, and tiny pointed brushes.  I love my...

Anchorage to Philadelphia

What’s the wish list?  I never know, as I meet a couple (these days always on Zoom…), what their requests will be in terms of design.  For this one, the specs were few and varied, and as always, my job was to make it an aesthetic whole.  THAT’S where the fun begins! Two trees, a koa and an olive, interlocking roots that form the mountain range above Anchorage, the Philadelphia skyline – with William Penn restored to his monumental glory, and a color palette limited to yellow, orange, and royal blue.  The solution was to hold the design together as a papercut and slip the color behind using pastel chalk sifted through a small sieve and then...

Klimt-Inspired Ketubah

Klimt-Inspired Ketubah

Another gift of a deep dive into a vision only glimpsed before:  the gilded and textured treasures of Gustav Klimt, translated into a cosmic ketubah, and grounded, like the vision on the horizon line of a planetarium as the light begins to change, with a clump of trees.  Crafting the art for this piece involved multiple layers of watercolor wash to give the heavens depth, and then a deliberate exercise in various metallic paints and metal leaf to design the swooshes that embrace the text and cut through the skies! Parts of the illumination are textured and raised, catching light and sparkling in copper, bronze, silver, and...
