Negev Menorah by Joy Stember

Negev Menorah by Joy Stember


Inspired by Joy's trip to Israel in January of 2010, this menorah is her interpretation of the hills she saw looking out over the Negev desert. It is made from fabricated pewter with two panels of large pebble texture elevated on either side of the form. Nine solid brass candle holders are affixed to the base. This is a special order item that is individually made to order.

Artist's Statement:
"The clean lines and repetitive nature in urban landscapes inspire my work, as well as mid-century design. I use a variety of metals such as pewter, brass, bronze, silver and copper to produce my designs. My work is handmade in the United States and each piece is lovingly fabricated by scoring and folding sheets of pewter to make 3 dimensional works of art. The gorgeous textures are pulled from many influences and are embossed into the metal. As a designer and maker, my intent is to encourage the importance of American high-end craft in the modern home by creating contemporary heirlooms for a new generation of collectors."

Dimensions are 10.25" x 2.75" x 4"
