Ketubah: Ketubah, (variously spelled ketuba, kettubah, katuba, katubah, and in the plural, ketubot, ketubbot and ketubahs) literally means "it is written." A marriage contract originating in the jewish culture but can be used for any wedding ceremony.
When ordered: I will contact you about specifics. Each custom Ketubah is hand painted and original. There are many choices involved. Below are things to think about when we collaborate on your unique piece of art.
Prices include: only artwork. You will either provide me with the written contract and I do the artwork around it or I can create one leaving space for the contract in any shape.
List symbols that you want in your ketubah. Some commonly used symbols are: ceremonial objects, clasped hands, animals (doves, sea horses, swans), trees and flowers, patterns, celtic knots, henna style, lace, etc. Anything (within reason) can be a motif for a ketuba.
What are your favorite colors? Least favorite? You might think in terms of temperature: cool colors (purples, blues, greens) or warm colors, (oranges, yellows, reds). Consider value--a light, pastel ketubah, or a darker, shaded kattubah. Do you like bright colors or do you want a more subtle effect in your marriage contract? You might want to pick out paint chips of colors you like.
Do you want a horizontal, vertical, or circular ketubah? Or an irregular shape? I can order any shape on archival paper or it can be painted on canvas.
I do rush orders at a 20% surcharge if all the necessary information is given to me less than 30 days before the wedding.
