“Adorned with Sapphires” merges sacred and physical adoration for the beloved. This ketubah was inspired by the verse, “… his body polished ivory adorned with sapphires…” (Song of Songs, chap. 5:14)
This torn paper collage is constructed from hand-made Japanese paper that is torn, applied and layered onto board over the course of several days. The process is intensely meditative for the artist. She begins with only an idea in mind. No sketches of the artwork are done prior to beginning and no instruments other than the artist’s hand are used to tear the paper. Sudden inspirations, “accidents” and the natural beauty of the paper are allowed to “create” the artwork, using the artist as the vessel of expression. Spontaneous, creative, mystical: the words used to describe the process of creating this torn paper ketubah also describe the people who love it.
