This ketubah features a papercut design of abstract waves and wave shapes around a central oval panel with text; above, left and right, the couple's initials; below, in the waves, the quote from Song of Songs: "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine." Above and below the image the Hebrew for this quotation is cut in as a framing border.
The couple's monogram is included below.
The papercut image is cut by hand from heavy hot press Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper; the background behind the image is created by a layer of Nepalese Lokta Gold metallic paper.
The above design displays a text copyright Micah Parker Artworks, Inc. The text may not be used without permission. It is for example only.
20"x26" image, uncut mouldmade Fabriano paper (22"x30") comes intact with natural (deckle) edges.
All my ketubahs and wedding certificates are custom made. I do the background watercolor (ink wash) painting, the papercut design and cutting, and the calligraphy myself. I can work with any text you give me, in any language, and I love to include images and symbols that are special to you in the papercut or calligraphic design. I will work with you to develop your dream ketubah or wedding certificate. Also, if you happen to be in the NYC area, I would be happy to meet with you to show you some examples of my work.
My ketubahs and wedding certificates are not prints: they are actual original paintings onto which I write, in calligraphy, your text. This is different from pre-printed ketubahs and certificates you see that are "personalized" simply by adding your names, place, dates into a blank slot.
Please convo me if you are interested in custom artwork of this kind. You can see other samples of my work on my website (http://www.jerise.com).
