busy in the studio....

Ive been very busy working in my basement studio making all sorts of pieces for my upcoming shows, especially the URJ show in December in Maryland.  It has been incredibly fulfilling to be creating all day.  I just hope everyone likes the pieces as much as I do.
I haven't added anything to my etsy shop yet because I have too many local shows coming up, but I thought I'd just post a few pictures to show you what I have been up to.  I also have been experimenting on some new ways to photograph the mezuzot, I like to show them hanging instead of lying flat.

If you are in the St. Louis area I will be at the Bnai Amoona Chanukah Bazaar, this Sunday October 30th, 9-1.  Come by and see me!

a work in progress

Well, my daughter's Bat Mitzvah is behind us (she was awesome, by the way) so it is time for me to concentrate fully on my metalwork.  There are a lot of changes in the works, a new logo and branding, a new website, and probably a new destination for this blog.  It's a lot of work, both inside and outside the studio.  I've been constructing some new awesome mezuzot and yads and some have been snatched up even before I could post them or add them to my etsy shop.   I am mostly preparing for a big show in December.  It is in Maryland at the URJ Convention, Union for Reform Judaism.  But I have some local St. Louis shows coming up in the next couple months.  So I better get back down to the basement studio and start creating!! The I hope to unveil what I have been working on in the next few weeks.  Please stay tuned.  I plan to return, even better.
I want to post a picture, but seriously I haven't actually photographed my work for months..... so much to do, so little time.
