It is a well-known tradition at a Jewish wedding for the groom to break a glass, and that memorable moment does not need to stop with the sound of breaking glass. Using special art glass, you can commemorate your wedding day with a personalized keepsake. Glasses designed and handmade by artist Fay Miller, are the perfect way to tie in your personal wedding touches to a timeless tradition. The glass comes with its own bag to keep the shattered glass so it can later be transformed into a candlestick, a mezuzah or even a picture frame to remember this special moment.
Another artist, Gary Rosenthal, has created a selection of glasses, where after the wedding, the shards are encased in a Lucite box. I love these creative alternatives to breaking a standard wine glass because of the personalization. And these items make wonderful wedding gifts, which will stand the test of time and be warmly remembered as the couple builds their life together and creates many of its own traditions.
