Tamara Baskin

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.

    Comments about HANDMADE GLASS HOUSE MEZUZAH:

    This mezuzah is beautiful, however, it does look a bit brighter in the online picture than it does in person. The one we received had a rough finish as opposed to what looks to be a shiny, smoother finish in the picture. That being said, everything else about it was lovely, i.e. the design, size, etc. I bought it for the front door of my parents' new home, and because it is glass, it is able to be hung outside and will not rust or turn color like a metal mezuzah. I specifically sought out a glass mezuzah because it can withstand the climate changes outdoors. All in all, it will be a colorful and meaningful addition to my parents' front doorway.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The mezuzah I ordered arrived earlier than expected, which was a huge load off my mind, as I was giving it as a gift and had a deadline. The packaging was sufficient, as this glass item arrived in perfect condition. I had to ask a question about the shipping timeframe, so I emailed the customer service department before placing my order. Their response was prompt and just detailed enough to put my mind at ease and give me all of the needed information. I think this is a great company with beautiful, well priced items, that I will order from again, and have already recommended to my friends.

        Comments about HANDMADE GLASS HOUSE MEZUZAH:

        I bought this as a gift for my In-Laws. I am glad I read another reviewer's comment about the image not looking like your product or I might have been a tad disappointed. Don't get me wrong, the product is very nice and my In'Laws LOVED it. But beware, the houses are not raised like it looks in the picture, rather, they are inset into the glass. It's still a very nice gift and I would get another for someone else.

          This product does not look like it does in the picture. The picture makes its seem like the colored glass pieces are raised and separate from the clear glass but when it arrived it was just one piece of glass with all of the colored houses melted into the clear piece of glass and not different separated pieces of glass fused together. They should update the picture make it look like what the consumers will receive.

                Ordered this to give as a gift and was pleased with the color and design, but disappointed at how much larger it is than most mezuzahs. I feel this should have been mentioned in the product description. Still a nice product.
