This ketubah design was inspired by a poem written by R. Yitzhak Luria in which the Sabbath Bride, the energy of marriage, fields and nature are all combined into song:

I shall sing praises

Standing to the right and left,
The Bride walks between us.
She passes by bedecked in jewels
And regal garments
...

The orchard is a wellspring of new life and rebirth. The sacred union of marriage is symbolized as this orchard, a continuous cycle of rebirth, growth, frailty and strength.
Nicole Gordon is an accomplished fine artist whose pieces are held in more than 40 private collections throughout the U.S. She came to find MP Artworks the same way many of our clients do ? via the Internet.

This collaboration on a very personal project soon led to a more professional arrangement, and her ketubah designs were among the first to be featured on MP Artworks' sites, along with those of founding artist Micah Parker.

A University of Michigan grad whose work is on display at Chicago's Spertus Museum, Nicole enjoys the opportunity to explore her environment and heritage via her very eclectic spin on the ancient medium of ketubah art.
