The Water Pump Mayim Achronim
2002, sterling silver.
Limited edition, signed and numbered by the artist.
The Water Pump Mayim Achronim is in the form of an old fashioned water pump.
The design reflects modernistic sensibilities. Its clean lines and realistic shape
form an art piece in motion as the handle is pumped. The base serves as a water
holder, which can be filled by unscrewing the basin from the base. By pumping
the handle a number of times initially, the water is lifted from the base to the
upper chamber. Subsequently, one pump is enough for the water to flow onto
one’s fingertips. The used water is filtered under the dome, which conceals the
impure water, allowing the piece to remain on the table during the reciting of the
Grace after Meals.
