This contemporary mezuzah case is made using the lost wax casting method. I first carved the design from a piece of wax. It is then encased in a special plaster, and the wax is burned out. The negative space is filled with molten bronze. It is then cracked out of the plaster, which is only used once. It is filed and polished, and a special solution is applied to develope the lovely green (verdegris) patina. This color varies and is not always exactly the same shade as pictured. It is then lacquered and waxed to discourage tarnish. Approximately 3-1/4" tall with the loops by 5/8" wide by 1/2" deep. Handmade by Ruth Shapiro.
This newer version is a deep, soft black with the tree highlighted to a bright gold color.
