Another mezuzah commission

Here I am pleased that the margins are well-justified, but that no letters are unduly stretched, and no words are crunched in order to achieve this effect. I strive for this in my mezuzah work.

The Dundas Museum & Archives is hosting a multifaith celebration and exhibition. On request, I contributed a mezuzah qelaf and case and a feather quill to this exhibition. :)

Torah repair

No before picture, unfortunately. This sefer Torah belong to Beth Jacob had been written missing a yod so that ויחי אנוש was written ויח אנוש. I erased and re-wrote as appropriate.

עוד מזוזות...

אחת משלוש מזוזות שכתבתי השבוע לקהילת בית ישראל בארצות הברית -- לשלוח מחר. נראה שאין דואר בקנדה היום לכבוד ט"ו באב. :)

ברכת הבית

I was commissioned to make a linocut, a birkat habayit wedding present for two hiloni D&D players who like the odd and the mystical but not necessarily the classically religious. This is it! The alchemical symbols are from 18th century European texts and feature both auspicious chemical properties (multiplication, sublimination) and elements reflective of the bride and groom (fire, sulphur, and air for the cat groom, salt, earth, and aqua vitae for the fox bride).
