An innovative reimagining of the Jewish glass-breaking tradition for any wedding.
A tri-layer, sheet glass “sandwich” arrives unbroken. During the ceremony, the center layer is shattered but remains sealed between the two outer panes. The resulting object is a permanent and unique material expression of this special moment.
When hung in a window, the complex web of cracks reflect shifting daylight, and the glittering effect is jewel-like from every angle.
The framed, 18”x18” panel (18 is lucky number “chai”), comes in a choice of 3 colors: clear, grey, or bronze.
The package also includes glass-breaking tool with detailed instructions and a pre-wedding consultation with the artist to integrate ritual choreography and language into the design of the ceremony.
Also suitable for vow renewal and anniversaries.

The artist is on-site before and during ceremony, and available to either perform the glass-breaking action or to support the couple as they perform the ritual and ensure seamless integration into overall ceremony.
