In Preparation of Passover Show, New Artists Being Added to Site
February 10th, 2021
Eighteen days until the Passover Show.
Today we are welcoming two new artists to the site - a great woodcrafter, and a graceful potter.
Amy Gilron: Woodcrafter Extraordinaire
Amy remembers a defining moment, when she was five and watched her father build a wood cabinet for the kitchen and marveled at the beauty of the wood and the care her father was taking. The moment flashed back, when after graduating from the University of Illinois, she had the opportunity to apprentice with a master wood carver in Denmark. Amy is one of very few women woodcrafters and a role model. Her style is always evolving, and becoming more sophisticated. Her one-of-a-kind pieces bring the natural varieties of wood in art and Judaica into your home or synagogue.
Amy will be featured in our event on March 7th at 10 am - The Passover Tablescape: The Centerpiece: Seder Plate.
Jennifer Wankoff: Graceful Potter
Jennifer’s pottery has something distinctive about it. If you walked into a gallery anywhere you would recognize her work. The defining characteristic is the elegance of movement or
grace in its style, which also reflects her friendly openness. She is a skilled artist in total command of her medium and has contributed to the craft show for eight years.
Jennifer’s pottery passion grew from a program at a Kibbutz she was part of as a teenager. The connection it gave her to folk art, history, land and agriculture is very much part of the excitement she expresses in her work.
Jennifer will be featured in our event on March 7th at 10 am - The Passover Tablescape: The Centerpiece: Seder Plate.
