seder and matzah platesby Tamara Baskin
- the story
Tradition Meets Design
Spruce up your Seder this Passover with glass designs that combine playfully modern colors and shapes with cherished tradition. Created by the late Tamara Baskin, each platter features a motif of colorful houses and trees that are cut from individual pieces of glass and then fused to the plate's surface, creating a striking embossed effect. The glass that each plate is made from has a subtle rainbow hue that shimmers, adding to the warmth that the plates bring to your table. The Seder Plate (left) features spaces for chazeret (romaine lettuce), z'roa (roasted shankbone), charoset, maror (chrein), karpas (celery sticks), and beitzah, while the Matzo Plate (right) is perfectly sized to hold square matzo (and even the Afikomen, before it disappears). Tamara's work continues through her family. Handmade in Florida. Sold individually.

Born and raised in Israel, Tamara Baskin began her career in art after moving to the United States.
A self-taught artist with more than twenty years experience working in several media, she spent the last years of her life working with fused glass--with emphasis in creating elegant yet functional designs to celebrated Jewish life.
Her work has been featured in American Style, Niche magazine, the New York Times Best of Season issue, Boca magazine and many other local media. Her American Flag Menorah is on display in the White House, and her Israeli Flag Menorah was a gift to former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.
Tamara passed away in 2007, but her family continues to preserve her memory through carrying on her art.
