MENORAH.jpg
 

This menorah sculpture is the product of many years of prototyping and exploration into 2D to 3D digital design processes. Its form is an ultra modern interpretation of the classic Chanukah menorah form, but the material choice of bronze is meant to give the menorah a sense of timelessness.

ultra modern classical form

All of the arms of the menorah branch from the same sheet of metal, just like the Jewish people share a common origin. The form of this object is rooted in tradition, yet it was created using contemporary technology – a reminder that Jewish tradition thrives and adapts amidst modernity.

This menorah can be displayed year round, and is also functional for its intended ritual use. This is a limited edition of one hundred.
