  Vitrages-Stained Glass-Twelve Tribes- Synagogues glass art-Vitrages and Unique decorative Windows: Sara Konforty's studio designs to religious organizations, to synagogues, Vitrages, for private home and for public houses.

The vitrage in Israel, the stained glass or the painted glass is very popular and has a place of honor in today's designing and also in the living art. The Vitrage is an ancient craft but Konforty added her special techniques and stile to the glass art works. Konforty is producing special vitrages to the synagogues. This 12 Vitrages- the Twelve Tribes of Israel was produced specially for the synagogue "Heichal Pinchas". Konforty painted and produced for the synagogue on the 12 windows unique 12 vitrages with a combination of transparency colors with opaque and brilliantly colored glass because of the direct light of sun.  There are 6 vitrages in each side of the Aron Hakodesh of the Synagogue Eicahl Pinchas. During the day, the colors are changing and the vitrages looks differently. Throughout the day the vitrages are transformed according to the lighting variation of the sun. In each hour the handmade stained glass has its unique look, charm and beauty. During the day the handmade painted glass looks differently than in the evening or at night with the electric light.

Here we can see the creation of the painted vitrage of Judah, Tribe one of the twelve painted tribes, with the symbol of the  lion:

 Y ou, O Judah, your brothers shall praise; your hand shall be on the nape of your foes; your father’s sons shall bow low to you. Judah is a lion’s whelp; on prey, my son, have you grown. He crouches, lies down like a lion, like the king of beasts-who dare rouse him? The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet; so that tribute shall come to him and the homage of peoples be his. He tethers his ass to a vine, his ass’s foal to a choice vine; he washes his garment in wine, his robe in blood of grapes. His eyes are darker than wine; his teeth are whiter than milk.

Genesis 49, 8-12

About choosing the sort of glass- it depends of the size of the windows. If the window is small (30-40 cm) as the Twelve Tribes of the Synagogue Eicahl Pinchas- the thickness can be 4-6 cm.  When the window is much bigger it is recommended to use Double glazing, Triplex, a thicker glass or other special glass.

The main goal of the artist is to enhance the glory of the varieties' of the Synagogues with splendor, with unique variations of styles and colors, and great elegance.
