Handmade ceramic menorahs really feel just suitable for this year. Here are 5 variations, some charmingly wonky, all prepared to rejoice Hanukkah starting up on December 10—and also to be loved anytime candlelight is termed for.
Above: Brooklyn ceramic artist Rachel Pots attaches nine hand-thrown vases alongside one another to form her signature menorahs. “The bottles that make up the Ceramic Menorah [$160] remind us of the solitary oil bottle or cask from the tale of Hanukkah,” she suggests. Her Judaica line is obtainable from Foods52—alas, the menorah is at present marketed out—and from her studio, the place the menorahs are produced to purchase in 4 to six weeks.
Previously mentioned: The modular stoneware JST B. Zippy Menorah, $200, can be organized in diverse designs in a cluster or a row. Designed by Bari Ziperstein, it is from Judaica Normal Time, a playful new line devoted to “exploring the place concerning religion and structure.”
Above: Our mate Michele Quan makes some of the most eye-catching menorahs all over. This 1 is the MQuan Constellations Menorah, $345. Of her star iconography she writes, “A Initially Nations artist the moment said to me ‘Everything we will need to know is in the sky,’ and at times when you appear at the sky it can cut straight down to the bone. It is this minute, in the midst of it all, that I test to express.”
Earlier mentioned: Ceramic artist Virginia Sin describes her new Stacke Menorah, $110, as “sleek and brutalist.” She makes it in two finishes: “speckled” (shown right here) and black.
Earlier mentioned: The JST X ANK Ceramics Menorah, $180, is a collaboration involving Judaica Regular Time and Ank Ceramics of Camden, Maine. It is readily available in two glazes: Sparrow (demonstrated below) and Squid Ink.
Also worth examining out: Via Maris, a new line of Judaica, menorahs and candles incorporated.
