My work is reflective of an avid interest in my Jewish heritage with an eye for current cultural trend. There is an effort to celebrate this rich endowment of past ritual with contemporary expression available to me through ultra-modern technique coupled with age old traditional silver and goldsmithing. I love the joy inherent in many of our customs, such as spinning dreidls at Chanukkah for cookies and chocolate "gelt" as well as recitation of familiar prayers with my children. With joy there is to be had in creating for others the implements they require to participate actively in the joys of Jewish life! Such an honor!
