About Shabbat Candlesticks

I made this artwork because I love handmade Judaica. It is ceramic painted with acrylic and finished with acrylic glaze. The work is relevant to Shmita because it is a new work painted to look old. Shmita is an ancient tradition that is being reimagined in many new ways. I also think that Shabbat is like a mini Shmita every week, and I like that these candlesticks can be used to welcome Shabbat.
