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 ti celebrate Jewish life cycles. Tamara became a true leader in the glass industry in both judaica and non-judaica guilds throughout the world.
Her legacy is carried on by her husband and son, who are committed to building and expanding on classic designs and techniques Tamara made so popular in her work.
