Jewish Oil Lamp, First Century C.E.

My Greek, Roman and North African Bronze Oil Lamps depict my interpretation of existing artifacts
found in various archaeological museums throughout the world. I have created timeless, classical bronze oil lamps that portray 1000 years of Mediterranean vessels of light. Each is an original, sculpted in wax and cast in bronze by the lost wax method

Most lamps from 300 BC to 700 AD were made from clay. I have chosen to honor the original artists by casting these lamps in bronze to give them a permanence and beauty that only bronze can impart.-
