Shabbath Plate

Year: 2009

The Sabbath plate uses the leg territory of a plate, the part that is on the bottom of the plate and is used to elevate the plate in order to prevent direct heat on the table and as part of the manufacturing process of the plate.

Instead of a circular stripe the leg of the Sabbath plate is made up of the Hebrew text from the Genesis book: “And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made”.

The text becomes the physical and symbolic foundation of plate and the Sabbath meal.
