Artist’s Statement

My inspiration for my cookie design derived from a sculpture that I had liked by a local Jerusalem artist, Yair Emmanuel, which depicts a vibrant Jerusalem skyline.

I was attracted by the use of colour and naivety of the piece, which too me shows Jerusalem to be a vibrant city that is inhabited by various identities and groups who must work together to bring tolerance to the city.

The cookie measures 6 inches by 5 inches, and I have hand decorated the piece using a royal icing ‘wet on wet’ technique, and a technique of adding a 3d effect, by allowing the icing to dry inbetween stages of application.  I used a variation of consistencies of icing and nozzles, in a total of 13 colours.

Cookie design was re-created with permission of the artist, Emmanuel.
