Tamara Baskin

Born and raised in Israel, Tamara Baskin moved to the United States where she began her career in art. She had twenty years experience working in several mediums, but was drawn to the art of fused glass production. Her emphasis was in creating elegant but functional pieces designed to celebrate Jewish life cycles. Tamara became a true leader in the glass industry in both Judaica and non-Judaica guilds throughout the world. In Tamara's own words, "Each piece I design is an extension of myself." Tamara passed way too young. Her legacy is carried on by her family's commitment to build and expand on the classic designs and techniques Tamara made so popular in her work. They continue to hand make all our items from scratch in the studio, taking great pride in their work. They bring in large crates of raw sheet glass and then proceed to design, hand cut, hand assemble, fire, slump, grind, sandblast, adhere and a whole lot more by hand in the studio. Your item is a direct product of that painstaking craftsmanship and no two pieces come out exactly alike. Believe it when Tamara's son says - Your Item Is One of a Kind.
