“When I put a dreidel in a stand, it changed my life. It went from being a dreidel to a piece of art.“
Gary Rosenthal has been sculpting in welded metals since the early 1970’s. Together with a team of talented craftspeople he creates one of the most popular and unique lines of Judaic art in the country. Combining copper, brass, and steel with brilliant fused glass, the Gary Rosenthal Collection has a contemporary style rooted in tradition. His inspiration comes from the rich history of the Jewish people which tells us it’s a blessing – a mitzvah – to make beautiful, functional, art. Work from Rosenthal's collection has been presented to presidents from Carter, to Clinton, to Obama - and celebrities as varied as Bette Midler, John Travolta and Ben Stein. It can be viewed worldwide in galleries, collections and museums including Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery, Corning Museum of Glass, American Craft Museum, B'nai B'rith Museum, The Jewish Museum, Skirball Museum of Culture, and the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts.
