The mikveh pool is a vessel that contains water collected to hold human bodies – each one the vessel of a unique, sacred life. The container itself is not sacred – the intention makes it so.
Mayyim Hayyim itself is a vessel, too: a space where songs and laughter echo, where tears and sighs settle in quiet safely.
The cups and bowls, pots and pitchers in this exhibit express two very different artistic points of view, the purist and the iconoclast. What they share, however, makes this show one of the most interesting the Mayyim Hayyim gallery has yet presented.
