Mary Jurek's Stainless Steel Passover Creations

Mary Jurek's Passsover Seder Plate, Matza Plate & Candlesticks

Mary Jurek’s process begins with pencil drawings, followed by the age-old technique of hammering or "raising" flat stainless steel sheets into trays & bowls. More finely detailed elements are created with “lost-wax” casting techniques. Once the rough edges are ground & filed, items made with multiple parts are then hand- welded together.
