Four Directions Ner Tamid

Master glass artisan Gabriel Bass has blown the glass directly into the wooden base. The four directions are represented in four colours of inlayed glass, hand made on the torch at Bass Synagogue Furniture studios. Eternal Light mold has hollowed by hand on a lathe from local found Israeli cypress, carefully seasoned in the shop. The mold undergoes final sanding, carving and glass inlays before the lacquer finish applied. The glass is then reinserted into the mold. Each piece is unique, being carefully crafted one at a time by artist Gabriel Bass. This Eternal Light was purchased by a synagogue in Los Angeles.

Custom projects are processed individually.

The renderings will help you, your committee, and donors actualize how the project will look in your space. It can also help greatly to raise additional funds and make your project a reality. We continue to revise the sketches according to your feedback until you are fully satisfied with the design and budget before we begin production.
