Profile Details

Contemporary Jewish artist and judaica designer Laura Cowan is a graduate of Silversmithing and Jewellery at London Guildhall University, and now lives in Israel. Laura's modern Judaica art ideas and designs make great Jewish gifts for Jewish holidays such as Hannukah and Pesach (Passover), as well as unique and modern gifts for a Jewish wedding, Bar or Bat Mitzvah. Many of Laura's Judaica designs are inspired by the Sixties mission to land a man on the moon. Although this was achieved even before Laura was born, she was fascinated by the hype and excitement generated by the race to the moon. Laura also loved the irony of a futuristic design based on what is now history. Combining this with her Jewish upbringing and identity, Laura has produced many stunning pieces of modern Judaica. Laura was thrilled when she was contacted by American Astronaut Greg Chamitoff. At a request from a former professor and a friend, he proposed to take 2 of Laura's Mezuzot with him to the International Space Station. After passing NASA’s stringent tests they received the go ahead to send Laura's Apollo Mezuzah and Shuttle Mezuzah on Expedition 17, which blasted off in May 2008. Laura's designs start at $49 and are available to buy from her secure website
