Copper Mezuzah Case
Known for her work dealing with memory and history, Beth Haber explores the balance between the durable and the delicate.
In this series, Haber fuses hand-painted illuminated papers and mixed media with copper to create a mezuzah case evoking both scroll and treasure and creating jewel cases in contemporary form. Signed by the artist.
As each case uses hand-painted paper, no two are exactly alike and colors will vary.

Meet the Artist: Beth Haber
Beth is a Hudson Valley artist whose work is concerned with issues of archive and transparency - exploring the intermediary space between descriptive observation and the imagination. Her process of assemblage is informed by the “vast sea” of living tradition in dialogue with the world and by the notion of Gilgul (recycling): she considers the implications as archive moves from paper to plastic, recycling the traditional art genre of still life. Beth is a recipient of the New York State Council of the Arts Award. Her work has been shown at Bard College, Vassar College, The Katonah Museum and the Israel Museum in Jerusalem and is in museum, university and private collections throughout the world, including that of Shimon Peres.Learn More
