Working in glass since the 1960’s, Steve Resnick and his late wife, Valerie, created a collection of exquisite sculpted glass Judaica and accessories. Steve has continued his work in glass, with each piece designed with the performance of a specific ritual in mind and with the explicit intention of beautifying the performance of mitzvoth. His collection includes seder plates, honey dishes, a carved pomegranate decanter for your Seder table, candle sticks, kiddush cups, tzedakah boxes, menorahs, mezzuzahs, as well as sculptures, vases, and even a Shofar.
The beauty of Steve’s glass pieces derives both from his skillful carving of the glass, as well as the sophistication and the spirituality of the design imagery. Each is individually crafted, using no stencils or templates at any time. Borrowing on his experience in stone sculpture, Steve’s glass carving is characterized by its wonderful textural quality, utilizing intricate organic motifs.
After both undergraduate and graduate studies at Cornell, Steve stayed on to teach techniques of stained glass. He moved to the Washington, DC area in 1976, establishing one the most successful art glass studios in the region and producing countless commissions of stained, etched and carved glass for residential and commercial application. He is a leading authority on glass restoration and has been called upon to participate in restoration projects for the Smithsonian Institution as well as the U.S. Capitol. His works has been featured in a number of distinguished museums. Steve’s sculptures have also been presented to dignitaries worldwide including Shimon Peres, Yitzchak Shamir, Congressman Charles Schumer, Hillary Rodham Clinton and President Bill Clinton.
