Fred Fenster, Kiddush Cup, 1995 (originally designed 1988), raised and constructed pewter, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Ruth Neubauer, 1996.32.3
Kiddush Cup was among the pieces that Fred Fenster began creating in the late 1980s as a contribution to Jewish ritual traditions. Kiddush cups are the religious counterparts to the objects he has designed for family-oriented events. Fenster folded the pewter into a six-sided star at the base of the cup to symbolize, through his choice of form and material, the strength and durability of the Jewish faith (Metalsmith, Fall 1986).
