Are you someone who has come through a challenging experience and wants to create a peaceful setting?
Are you looking for a way to incorporate more rituals into your life?
Are you looking to create sanctuary in your home?
Have you been looking for talismans to wear that help you keep spiritual feelings throughout the day?
Are you looking to contribute to a peaceful world, by joining a community of peace?
Do you have a peaceful cause that you want to raise money for? My art is often used for that purpose.
When I started metal smithing, it was as if I took the tools out of my back pocket. It felt right. Clearly this was something I was meant to do-- all the time. I was using my grandparents’ story of survival for a paper in a university class on the Holocaust and Genocide, when my grandfather started giving me his tools. With the help of a wonderful metal arts teacher the idea for my first mezuzahs came into being. They had flames, jail bars, and barbed wire on them, yet they preserved an important Jewish tradition, that I was able to share.
In making and explaining those pieces to the class, I realized that it is important to me that we understand our oneness-- we all breathe, we all bleed, we all experience pleasure and pain. Organized religion is not going to bring us together. Yet, there are tools in each one that have value to any human regardless of faith. I want to share Torah so that anyone can use it’s gifts, which I believe will help blur the lines that separate us.
This art is not about converting people to Judaism; this is about understanding that we can all use the vibration of the Torah to raise our resonance, to lift ourselves, to come into peace and harmony with ourselves and the world. The word Israel means: one who has been through a challenging experience and came through with love in their heart. This is the spirit of the Israel that I envision in the world and the one I wish to share through my art.
My work is bold, it makes a statement. It is about people being safe, while being seen in the world.
I work best with clients who:
- Have been through a challenging experience and came through with love in their hearts.
- Are holding a vision of the future for humanity that includes: oneness, peace, and taking care of the earth.
- Are looking to create a personal environment (home and body) that feels like sanctuary-- sacred, safe and healthy.
- Are looking to incorporate new rituals in order to feel spiritually supported, and create room for rest in their lives.
- Live in abundance and give of themselves abundantly.
My Promises: When you choose to work with me, you can absolutely count on receiving high quality metal work, that not only is beautiful, well made, of a nice weight, and uses sustainable materials whenever possible, but also comes with spiritual meaning that will enrich your life.
My intentions: When you choose to work with me I intend to help you create sanctuary, a safe place-- both inside your home and as adornment for your body. This space is filled with the vibration of Torah-- beauty, loving kindness, caring for one another and the earth, for now and for future generations.
