Congrats to Richard H.of Winston Salem, NC, the winner of this menorah giveaway!

If you're reading this blog you obviously enjoy the Gary Rosenthal Collection's work, and if you're like most people, you enjoy getting something for free.  Therefore, to thank you for being fans, we've got a special menorah to give away today!  Not everything we make here ends up going into production, simply because we make way too many different pieces!  No need to just let those prototypes sit on the shelf though.

Here's a nice little menorah, perfect for a wedding gift.  It's not going to be put into productions so this one is truly one of a kind.

New Commissions

Every now and then we get a request from someone to create something truly unique for them which always leads to something pretty cool.  I'd like to share a few we've done in recent months here at the studio.  If you are interested in a special piece like this don't hesitate to contact us.

This unique award displays the first five notes of Shema Yisrael.  The different colors denote sharps and flats.

This spectacular piece was designed by one of our studio designer's Ned Drummond and is currently on display in our upstairs gallery as part of the Hiddur Mitzvah Center.  This steel, brass, pressed copper and fused glass menorah stands an impressive five feet tall atop a stone base.
Also designed by Ned for the upstairs gallery is this set of artistic sculptures that each stand about 2.5 feet tall.  The center one which features a Hamsa has already been sold to someone who fell in love with it while visiting the gallery.
We received a request for a large yad with enough glass that all the students in a class could work on in a Hiddur Mitzvah Project.  Framed and hung with a commemorative plaque it makes a very special and personal teacher's gift.  They liked it so much that this will become an annual project for them!
