Star of David

This is my intepretation of a pattern from a carpet page of the Kennicott Bible, one of the greatest examples of medieval Spanish book binding extant. It was illuminated and designed by Joseph Ibn Hayyim and was published in 1476 a mere 16 years before the edict of expulsion. The original was done in Micography, unique to the Jews at that time. Click here to see Ibn Hayyim's version. I altered some of the lines and made them solid instead of interlace. There are a number of possible color variations, all of which greatly change how this pattern is perceived. This pattern is also available as a Seder Plate with matching little plates illuminated in Hebrew. Click here to visit my other Seder plates.

Star of David: $500
Seder minis: $100-$140

All of my platters are around 16" in diameter and are wired through the foot on the reverse so that they may be hung on the wall. Patterns can be commissioned in any color scheme. Shipping a piece can take anywhere from a couple of weeks to a couple of months depending on where I am at in my firing schedule and whether I have one of that pattern made already. I ship anywhere in the continental US for $20, and abroad at around $60 depending on the country.
