Sustainably harvested applewood, maple, red dogwood, archival 140lb. paper, purchased reed, wood dyes, pigment inks, thread 52"L x 40"W x 22"D 2015 In Jewish Tradition we kiss the Torah, prayer shawls, and some ceremonial objects to show love, respect and remembering. Members of Reform Congregation Bet Ha'am in South Portland, Maine were invited to kiss a triangle of paper while thinking about what they love about their congregation/community. These were sewn together into 6 pointed stars and then sewn together end to end, colored, and placed in a wall hung vessel evoking the Burning Bush and the ner tamid: eternal flame in each synagogue. More than 200 people participated in this project, which was part of a Maine Jewish Museum invitational exhibition of art inspired by Maine's Synagogues.
