toby rosenberg / Fine Judaica

It was around 1980 that my mother asked me to make her a hanukah menorah. I made a series of them, each very different. It was an exciting opportunity to explore sculptural forms and our Jewish practices. But seeing my mothers delight in these menorahs is what hooked me on making Judaica a part of my pottery. Since that time I have developed an extensive line of objects for home rituals, holidays, and life cycle events. Most of them are elegant and evoke a bygone era. Some, like my “Klezbear Hanukiah” and "Village Tzedakah Box" are full of whimsey. My goal is to create pieces that will become beloved heirlooms as each family creates their own history and rituals around them.
