The Block Menorah is simple and elegant with straight cast glass that fits neatly on any windowsill or tight space. Clear glass shows waves of structure within the simple form. Metal inserts are included to allow candles to burn out on their own according to tradition. Inserts are designed to fit a standard menorah candle; candles are not included. The Block Menorah stands about 7″ tall, 11.75″ long, and 1″ deep. Each menorah is signed and dated and all pieces are made by hand so no two are exactly alike.

Glasslight Clear Block Menorah
- Joel’s lifelong passion for glassblowing began in his college days at the Rochester Institute of Technology. It was the early 1970’s and the school had just opened its School of American Craftsmen’s glassblowing program. Following these initial introductions, Joel went on to teach himself the craft and by the late 1970’s had built his own shop. It was at this time that he and his wife, Candace Luke-Bless established what would become Glasslight. Since then, Joel has refined and honed his work constantly innovating techniques and designing new pieces. His products have ranged from small table lamps to Judaica to his newest endeavor, large-scale chandeliers. Candace began her career as an artist after graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology with a Fine Arts degree. While she had majored in printmaking, she became engaged in the art of Glassblowing through her husband, Joel Bless. Candace finds the colors achievable in the medium of glass truly inspirational. She went on to design the form and color composition of many of the pieces Glasslight produces. Candace also developed and pioneered Glasslight’s line of fused glass work which range from custom tiles and bowls to large table tops.
