New Ketubah Design- golly that took forever!

Posted on 06 January 2014 by admin

So I’ve been working on these designs since the summer, on and off. My husband will attest to the many many variations this design took until I settled on the one that felt right to me.  I hope that my perfectionist tendencies will at least bring some joy to those people who will see these new pieces and agree that I was right to keep at it. I am pleased as punch in any case. I found my way into a new way of working and I reconnected with my love of building shapes with letterforms. The quote is from the Song of Solomon, and goes like this- ‘Arise my love, my fair one & come away for lo! the winter is past the rains are over and gone, flowers appear on the earth, the season of singing has come.’ I mean, holy cow, is there a lovelier sentiment on your wedding day? I was married, in fact, today, six years ago. I was dead in the middle of winter and rainy to boot, but damned if the flowers were not blooming in my heart and didn’t I feel the earth sing with me? It was not my intention to reveal these designs on my anniversary, but of course how fitting.

I’d love to hear your thoughts!
