“Saffron & Spices” evokes the Garden of Eden, where perfumed trees bloom eternally and Winter was unknown — a magical garden lost now to all but Lovers. “Saffron, calamus and cinnamon, with all trees of frankincense; myrrh and aloes, with all the chief spices. You are a fountain of gardens, a well of living waters, and flowing streams…” (Song of Songs, chap. 4:14-15)

This torn paper collage is constructed from hand-made Japanese paper that is torn, applied and layered onto board over the course of several days. The process is intensely meditative for the artist. She begins with only an idea in mind. No sketches are done prior to beginning and no instruments other than the artist’s hand are used to tear the paper. Sudden inspirations, “accidents” and the natural beauty of the paper are allowed to “create” this piece, using the artist as the vessel of expression. Spontaneous, creative, mystical: the words used to describe the process of creating this torn paper ketubah also describe the people who love it.
