Solid, simple, and ceremonial, with an integrated tray to catch wax drippings and a safe resting place for a used match while it is still hot. It is made of solid cast iron and has the heft expected of such a material. The weight gives it a sense of solidity. There is an honesty in the singularity of the iron material which suggests this object could age and continue to look even more beautiful as it acquires a patina from continual use.
"Menorah" is included in the permanent collection of The National Museum of American Jewish History.
