Limited Edition Modern Antique Menorah by NU
Price $1,200.00Members $1,080.00
Designer Nurit Kariv and artist Tamara Efrat collobarated for NU to create a modern interpretation of a traditional, antique menorah design. Inspired by the desire to make a functional piece of art that engenders tradition and memory - grandmothers, family, holiday - they searched for an old menorah in the markets of Jerusalem. Next, they produced a concrete mold with the original silver menorah, allowing them to recreate it in a modern handmade clay material. One-by-one, each menorah is individually molded and bonded together by hand then bisque-fired, hand-glazed, and finally kiln-fired. The result is an elegant, timeless white ceramic menorah with shadowed edges highlighting every detail of the original.
To complete the menorah, each one includes a set of handcrafted coordinating Hanukkah candles.
The delicate handcast mold construction only allows for a limited quantity of menorahs to be made. Each menorah will come with a numbered certificate. Limited edition of 17 pieces.
Menorah and candles are made in Israel.
Nurit Kariv is an Israeli food-stylist and designer. Tamara Efrat is an Israeli multidiciplinary artist and entrepeneur who works at the intersection of traditional craft and advanced technology.
