This piece was created as a wedding gift for Rebecca and Danny. I used parts of their invitation in a collage format.
It was great to work with paper for a change.
I was commissioned to create this tallis and matching bag with my friend, Maxine. She created the corner pieces and I put it all together. We enjoy collaberating on these projects and people definitely get one-of-a-kind tallit. For those who don't know - a tallis is a prayer shawl that is worn during Jewish services. When you put it over your head, you create your own sacred space within the congregation. A tallis is often given on a Bar or Bat Mitzvah when the child is considered an adult and can lead services as a full participant in the community.
