The newest rendered ketubah illumination for 5775 is gracefully suggestive of the brilliant traditions of Majolica, a beloved decorative pottery glaze art form originating in the 14th century and introduced from Moorish Spain by way of the Island of Majorca. Majolica pottery is largely produced in certain regions of Italy known for its special clays and formulas for brilliant paint, typically rendered in five colors: cobalt blue, antimony yellow, iron red, copper green and manganese purple painted on an opaque white background. Majolica pottery is still produced today and is world renowned because of its master craftsmanship and durability. The craft has gained respect as an art form, even though pieces are intended for every day use. “Majolica” ketubah honors this luminous tradition for master craftsmanship, researched design inspired by historic decorative design to create a new and brilliant composition, a master work of art for every day use!
