Challah Plate, about 15 inches long.  Hand carved low-fire stoneware. 

Each will vary. $108

I enjoy crafting all kinds of ritual objects for use in the home or as wearable art. Pieces are one-of-a-kind, and require 4-5 weeks lead time (jewelry sometimes ships faster).  If if you are looking for special holiday, housewarming or wedding  gift,  please be sure to allow sufficient time for the piece to be created and shipped.   I take great care with these objects - jewelry is all handmade, and all ceramics are handpainted and carved.  Pieces will vary slightly from those shown below.  I can add Hebrew calligraphy to some pieces - email me at for more information or specific requests..

If you place an order, I would be happy to send you an email with a photo of the finished item for your approval.  If you are not completely satisfied, it can be re-made.  However, once an item has shipped, there are no returns or refunds. 

Other ritual items, including ceramic Miriam's cups, challah trays, tzedakah boxes, and silver magen David and chamsa charms, pins and bracelets, are available, and photographs will be posted soon.  

I offer a one-day workshp in the NYC area for silver clay jewelry - perhaps your synagogue members might be interested in learning to make their own unique pieces.  Please email me if you are interested.
