Silk Collage

Hannah's Challah Cover
Brad's Challah Cover
These are two challah covers (sabbath bread covers) that were commissioned as gifts by my sister-in-law Betty Ann for her friend's twins B'nai Mitzvah. Each piece contains work created by the child, and then complementary pieces painted by me. I have also calligraphied the blessing over bread, the child's name and B'nai Mitzvah date. All the pieces have been sewn together to create a challah cover about 16 x 20 inches.
