Havdala Plate. Armenian Ceramic
Size: 8.7" / 22 cm
This beautiful plate will add a touch of beauty to your Satuday night table. As the Sabbath departs, a touching ceremony takes place with wine, spices, and a candle. This plate will be a great addition, as the wine is spilled and the candle drips, and we say goodbye to the Sabbath for one more week.
The words in the center read Hamavdil Ben Kodesh Lechol ("The One who separates between Holy and secular") in Hebrew.
Each individual item is hand made with ceramic clay. Once complete it is placed in an oven at temp. 1000°C until hardened.
Each piece is then hand painted using metallic and oxidized paint in order to keep its natural color.
Again it is returned to the oven at the same temperature and finished with fine glazing.
