Menorah : Vancouver

Vancouver, Washington 2019

Commissioned by the Chabad Jewish Center of Clark County, this menorah was designed as a free-standing and demountable work for an annual Hanukkah menorah-lighting ceremony in a public setting. The 19-foot-tall stainless steel sculptural object can be disassembled and erected as a kit-of-parts, similar to tent pole construction. The base gets filled with sand and stones to create a ballast for wind loads, when assembled, and the menorah candles can be lit with a real flame, as well as an LED bulb.
