Interdisciplinary. Community. Advocacy. Humor.
Seder plate constructed using recycled tin cans and steel from toy appliances; 10k gold, sterling silver and aluminum rivets; stainless steel and brass screws.
Figures along the sides cut from recycled tin cans. Figures on three sides (starting with the black triangle) represent historical costume of the Jewish people throughout the centuries. The fourth side includes figures representing Japanese-Americans at the relocation camps, lost boys of Sudan, and Sudanese women carrying bundles.
Top of the Seder plate is embossed with forms representing Seder symbolic foods. Plexiglas panel fits securely into the top recess to make the Seder plate usable for the Seder service.
