Pillars Menorah

Artist Gabriel Bass originally designed and produced this winning entry for the Menorah Competition at the Philadelphia Jewish Art Museum near the beginning of his career. The menorah was later purchased by the Katzen Museum of Art at The American University in Washington DC, where it is part of the museum’s permanent collection. The impressive Hanukkah menorah stands to chest height and four inches deep. It was carved completely by hand from old-growth yellow cedar, using carving tools and techniques Gabriel learned as an apprentice to totem pole carvers in British Columbia in the late nineteen-nineties.

In order for us to deliver the best quality product, we need to make decisions regarding some details during production. You are likely not going to receive the exact product in the photograph on the website. Because of the organic nature of other custom projects, such as carving or glass work, there is no way in describing the exact details in rendering in advance. The only decisions that we make are those that we believe will make the product either of higher quality, stronger, more functional, or aesthetically pleasing. As a client of any craftsman you are putting your confidence in their decisions.
