The Jewish concept of Hiddur Mitzvah, or beautifying the ritual, is the essence of why I make secular ceramics as well as Judaica ritual objects for the home. When I think about people blessing wine in my kiddush cup, lighting shabbat candles with my candlesticks or simply eating cereal out of my bowls or drinking coffee out of my mugs, it makes me happy to think that my work has made those rituals a little more beautiful and special.
