The rustic rooftop water tower, a signature feature of New York City's skyline, has inspired generations of painters, sculptors, photographers, and filmmakers. From Alfred Stieglitz and Georgia O'Keeffe, to Rachel Whiteread and Tom Fruin, the "silent sentinels" of our city have ignited artists' imaginations. Now, Los Angeles-based ceramist Gaby Tepper has interpreted the water tower's unique charm and distinctive architectural silhouette in a series of handmade tzedakah boxes. Each box is a one-of-a-kind work of art formed, etched, fired, and finished in Tepper's studio—a functional sculpture made exclusively for us at The Jewish Museum.
Each tzedakah box is handmade and slight variations in color may occur. Please allow us to choose one for you.
