Pillar of Fire
לֹֽא־יָמִ֞ישׁ עַמּ֤וּד הֶֽעָנָן֙ יוֹמָ֔ם וְעַמּ֥וּד הָאֵ֖שׁ לָ֑יְלָה לִפְנֵ֖י הָעָֽם
The pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night did not depart from before the people.
Borosilicate and reduced soft glass, from 40 cm to two meters tall
The Pillar of Fire is built of numerous handblown glass vessels. Each lit sculpture is a different size and may contain various glass shapes in amber/gold mix. Glass contains both transparent and reflective surfaces, diffusing the light into a delightful texture.
The sculpture represents the eternal light in the desert that guided the Jews through the desert to the holy land, appearing as a pillar of cloud in the day and pillar of fire at night.
