The Glass Ke­tubah is an artis­tic project de­vel­oped by Skip and Il­lene Dyr­da. Both Skip and Il­lene have a col­lec­tive back­ground in var­i­ous medi­ums of art and re­flects their range of tal­ent in their dy­nam­ic pieces. Their Ke­tubot com­bines pho­tog­ra­phy and glass works to make a com­plete­ly orig­i­nal and one of a kind work of art.

As many know, most Ke­tubot are born out of wa­ter­col­or, paint or graph­ic de­sign. Skip and Il­lene’s web­site ex­plains that their Ke­tubot’s life be­gins in a kiln. At first glance, Noah and I au­to­mat­i­cal­ly as­sumed their Ke­tubah was made of com­plete glass, which al­ready was an in­ter­est­ing idea! How­ev­er their process is a lit­tle more in depth: They take pieces of gor­geous glass and fuse them to­geth­er to cre­ate the beau­ti­ful back­ground im­age. They pho­to­graph the fin­ished glass piece and ed­it the de­sign to com­bine with a bor­der and cho­sen text, and fi­nal­ly print­ed on archival wa­ter col­or pa­per. To fin­ish off their Ke­tubot, they recre­ate the most unique parts of the de­sign with ac­tu­al pieces of glass!

They of­fer their Ke­tubot with or with­out glass to ac­com­mo­date all bud­gets. They are al­so very flex­i­ble with texts and al­low cou­ples to change any­thing they de­sire. What I loved the most was their “match­ing ac­ces­sories” (even jew­el­ry!) to go with your Ke­tubah. Not on­ly the is over­all ap­pear­ance and or­ga­ni­za­tion of their web­site gor­geous, but their Ke­tubot are com­plete­ly unique and some­thing we’ve nev­er seen be­fore! Wether you’re look­ing for a one of a kind piece, or some­thing a lit­tle more tra­di­tion­al, Glass Ke­tubah is def­i­nite­ly worth a look.
