If there is one thing Noah and I con­tin­u­al­ly love about ke­tubot it’s the artists who take on the very dy­nam­ic and time con­sum­ing tech­nique of pa­per-cut. New York­er Jerise Fo­gel suc­cess­ful­ly at­tempts this method and in­te­grates unique im­agery and de­sign to make for an im­pres­sive col­lec­tion of ketubot.

Jerise un­for­tu­nate­ly does not have her own web­site where she sells her ke­tubot, in­stead she us­es an et­sy ac­count. We found the set­up of her et­sy store to be a lit­tle dis­ap­point­ing over­all, es­pe­cial­ly con­sid­er­ing the huge col­lec­tion of ke­tubot she has cre­at­ed! How­ev­er what she lacks in pre­sen­ta­tion, she makes up for in the beau­ti­ful col­lec­tion of her pa­per cut ke­tubot. She takes a tra­di­tion­al artis­tic tech­nique and com­bines it with vi­brant col­ors and di­verse im­agery. We ab­solute­ly loved all her dif­fer­ent ke­tubot of var­i­ous cities and landscapes!

One thing that tru­ly stuck out to us was the orig­i­nal­i­ty of her art work. She does­n’t make a sin­gle print, all of them are cus­tom made! She does the pa­per cut de­sign and styling her­self, as well as the cal­lig­ra­phy. Jerise’s ke­tubot con­tains a lit­tle bit of every­thing, from tra­di­tion­al artis­tic tech­nique and style to con­tem­po­rary im­agery and vi­brant col­ors. Her breath tak­ing art work is def­i­nite­ly a dif­fer­ent ap­proach on a clas­sic tradition.
