This lovely smooth red ceramic pomegranate is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship! Elegant simplicity yet innovative contemporary design that will make a wonderful addition to any home.
A classic Jewish decorative motif, the pomegranate has been grown for thousands of years in the Mediterranean region, and is referenced throughout the Bible as one of the 7 species native to the Land of Israel. In addition, the pomegranate has some of the deepest and richest symbolism in Judaism as its many seeds symbolize the abundance of righteousness, prosperity and wisdom.
Michal Ben Yosef designs and creates in Israel, focusing on ceramic Judaica and items for the home for nearly 20 years. All of her products are handcrafted and kiln-fired, ensuring long-lasting durability, while her artistic style is inspired by the shapes and colors found in nature in Israel. Michal's work captures with great sensitivity Israel’s spiritual qualities, beauty, and joy, and is sold in museums and galleries worldwide.
The pomegranate has long been a popular motif in Jewish art. As one of the seven Biblical species native to the Land of Israel, its many seeds symbolizes fruitfulness, abundance, as well as righteousness, hinting to the 613 commandments of the Torah (Talmud, Brachot 57a), making it a wonderful decoration the rest of the year as well.
