Each piece is designed with modern aesthetics and ritual practice in mind. Starting with a design idea, each piece is created in a CAD (computer-aided-design) software. This software helps create and refine the shapes of each piece.
With a finished CAD model, each piece is 3D printed to scale.
The 3D prints are then used to create plaster molds. The plaster molds are made in house. Once the first plaster mold is tested, a silicone mold of the mold is made in order to create multiple molds for production.
Each mold is filled with slip, which slowly gets absorbed by the plaster, leaving a shell which is the final piece. The molds are then opened to reveal the final piece of Judaica in porcelain. The pieces are then wiped clean and loaded into the kiln for the first of three firings.
Once they come out of the kiln, they are sanded smooth to remove all imperfections then sprayed with a thin coat of glaze. Once the glaze is dry, they are put back into the kiln for the glaze to melt.
Once removed from the glaze firing, platinum luster is applied to the surface, either by custom transfer decals or painted by hand. Each piece is then placed into the kiln for the third and final firing when the platinum is melted into the surface of the glaze, resulting in a shiny silver surface.
