Yad by Marian Slepian
This beautiful Yad was created by Marian Slepian, who is a recognized master in cloisonné enamel. For 30 Years, she has produced brilliant works of art in this ancient, virtually indestructible medium: a realm of glass, metal and fire, where every step is exciting, every new creation a challenge in the unknown. Creating objects for ritual use joins her love of tradition to her love for contemporary design. Each work contains design elements that refer to Biblical holidays and traditional observances, is dramatically contemporary yet retains the richness of its Byzantine hertitage. Slepian believes that she is creating heirlooms that unite the rich heritage of the past with the current trends toward the future.
