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).
