Miriam's Seder Cup for Passover

by Joy Stamber


      No Seder table is complete without Miriam's Cup. This new ritual object that is placed on the seder table beside the Cup of Elijah.

      Miriam's Cup is filled with water instead of wine and serves as a symbol of Miriam's Well, which was the source of water for the Israelite's in the desert.

      Putting a Miriam's Cup on your table is a beautiful way of making your seder more inclusive. It's also a way of drawing attention to the importance of Miriam and the other women of the Exodus story, women who are sometimes overlooked. Miriam's Well is said to have been a magical source of water that followed the Israelite's for 40 years. The waters of this well were said to be healing and sustaining.

      Miriam's Cup is completely and loving handcrafted in my artists workshop in Pennsylvania, from pewter and brass and measures

      • 4.75" H x 2.25" W in each side.

      Artist's Statement:Β The clean lines and repetitive nature in urban landscapes inspire my work, as well as mid-century design. I use a variety of metals such as pewter, brass, bronze, silver and copper to produce my designs. My work is handmade in the United States and each piece is lovingly fabricated by scoring and folding sheets of pewter to make 3 dimensional works of art. The gorgeous textures are pulled from many influences and are embossed into the metal. As a designer and maker, my intent is to encourage the importance of American high-end craft in the modern home by creating contemporary heirlooms for a new generation of collectors.
