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.
