Sherry Camhy’s Moses

Moses

“The image of Moses,” explains Sherry Camhy, “is drawn with sterling silver and fourteen and eighteen carat gold. Small lengths of various widths of the metals were cut then carefully shaped and placed in holders of appropriate sizes.”

Sherry Camhy‘s Moses is included in Women of the BookJewish Women Recording, Reflecting, Revisiting, a visual, interpretive scroll based on the form and content of a traditional Torah scroll created on 54 parchment panels (the number of Torah portions) by 54 Jewish women artists from around the world. You can read more about Camhy’s process here.

    Craftsmanship is essential to the artist. He needs it just as he needs brushes, pigments, and a surface to paint in. — Jackson Pollock
