We are proud to present an exciting line of Artistic Judaica by Yair Emanuel.
These gorgeous Star of David-shaped candle holders can be kept closed on the mantel throughout the week to show off the pretty design, then opened up to brighten the home on the Sabbath or other special occasions. The motif includes colorful wildlife scenes reminiscent of Armenian ceramic. The design was hand-painted with a brush using acrylic colors and then lacquered. Vivid and harmonious colors characterize the hand-painted wood.
As these pieces are covered with layers of lacquer, they are totally functional and waterproof and may be hand-washed.
Artist Yair Emanuel, a graduate of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, lives and works in Jerusalem. Vivid and harmonious colors as well as a mixture of the old and the new characterize Emanuel’s work, which is designed and crafted in his Jerusalem studio. The principal techniques utilized encompass painting on silk, hand-embroidery, raw-silk applique and painting on wood.
