Batya is inspired by the beauty of the Holy Land of Israel and the flowers and fruits of the land frequently find their way into her creations. Her Pomegranate Collection is inspired by jewel red pomegranates, one of the seven species of the Holy Land mentioned in the Bible.
“ A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees and pomegranates; a land of olive oil and honey.” Deuteronomy 8:8
Pomegranates trees grow all across Israel and their noble fruits even bear a crown. The pomegranates are considered by many to be a fruit that represents thanks and recognition. Hidden inside the modest fruit are hundreds of ruby red seeds that the Jewish people have compared to the commandments that they have been given by God.
Her Pomegranate Collection is the perfect way to set your table and bring the spirit of the Holy Land to every meal. You can purchase each item from open-stock to create your collection to suit your family!
Each item in the collection is crafted by hand, on Batya’s potter’s wheel in the heart of Jewish Samaria. Each bowl is made with love at each step of the process! Batya begins by shaping your bowl of her potter’s wheel, it is then fired for the first time. After the first firing, she decorates and glazes each bowl by hand and then returns the plate to the kiln for the second firing!
Batya’s Pomegranate Collection Bowls are ideally sized for serving soup, salad, or even to enjoy your breakfast cereal!
