  • The Jewish Museum - Collection - Hanukkah Lamp, 1986
    making at the Canadian Hadassa Wizo Neri Bloomfield College of Design The recipient of many awards Shur won the coveted Jesselson prize for Contemporary Judaica Design in 1994 Her work has appeared in many exhibitions in Israel and abroad including Nerot Mitzvah at the Israel Museum in 1985 as well as in commercial galleries Shur s lamp is constructed of two parts a shallow square metal container that holds the necessary oil and an aluminum cover pierced with a series of small cross shaped slits that allows one to pull the wicks through the slits in preparation for lighting Although designed as a Hanukkah lamp the artist concedes that the lamp could be used for other occasions the lamp is a modular use lamp for birthdays holidays and eternity occasions i e commemorative occasions etc Shur s design is guided by a sense of practicality and purpose Regarding the creation of Hanukkah lamps she makes the following observations An original Hanukkah Menorah represents a challenge that is at once Jewish and universal I focused on its original and most basic function When one strips away the ornamentation accumulated over the centuries one is left with an object that was devised essentially as a practical solution in response to the commandment of performing a specific ritual namely kindling the lights That activity directly ties the object to present day Jews who continue to perform the same ritual in commemoration of the original event I was ultimately guided by the same practical concept as that which presumably guided the original design namely the creation of a depression in the material so that it can be filled with oil My menorah is thus an attempt to return in terms of its basic design to its ancient and original function At the same time it is essentially a product of the present century because of the technology used to create it artist s statement nd courtesy the Spertus Museum Shur cites three main elements as key to her work Foremost of these is its practical usefulness The other two are observance of religious ritual and perpetuation of the Jewish cultural tradition artist s statement n d Source Braunstein Susan LUMINOUS ART HANUKKAH MENORAHS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New Haven and London Yale University Press 2004 pp 176 177 Bibliography Braunstein Susan FIVE CENTURIES OF HANUKKAH LAMPS FROM THE JEWISH MUSEUM A CATALOGUE RAISONNÉ New Haven and London Yale University Press 2004 pp 176 177 Braunstein Susan LUMINOUS ART HANUKKAH MENORAHS OF THE JEWISH MUSEUM New Haven and London Yale University Press 2004 pp 176 177 Lawrence Sarah E CRAFTING A JEWISH STYLE THE ART OF BEZALEL 1906 1996 Exh pamphlet New York The Jewish Museum 1998 no 72 Weiser Sharon ed AND I CROWN YOU WITH WREATHS Jerusalem International Judaica Design Competition 1996 p 65 This information may change as the result of ongoing research Other Works in Highlights article data cycle auto height calc data cycle timeout 0 data cycle easing linear data
