Sara and Michael Beames
Sara and Michael Beames started Beames Designs! in 1990. In a studio adjacent to their home, tucked into the beautiful Catskill Mountains, they produce hand made fused glass Judaica and home accessories.
Sara is the driving force behind the glass design. With a degree in Art from San Francisco State University and many years in the commercial art world, she has turned her passion for glass and good design into a joyous livelihood. Her work has received three Niche Award Nominations.
Michael, who grew up in Australia (g’day mate) has a background in education and business. His is the administrative side of the business, as well as sandblasting and final quality control.
Beames Designs! special collections include an ornament for the White House, now in the Clinton Library, and an Eternal Flame sculpture for the Kingston City Hall, Kingston, NY. Their goal is to create artwork that is functional, aesthetically appealing and accessibly priced.
