About this Artist
"My passion is metalsmithing. I use pewter, brass, bronze, silver and copper to help realize my designs. I mainly focus on ceremonial Jewish objects and objects for the home."
For Joy Stember, a life-changing trip to Israel helped the artist realize the connection of her spiritual identity and making art. As Joy Stember's work evolved, she found herself creating more and more Judaica.
Stember uses a technique of scoring and folding sheets of pewter to make her objects. The textures are roll-printed using a rolling mill and the pieces are soldered together using a lead-free low-temperature solder. Brass design elements are also soldered in place. The geometrical nature of Stember's work keeps to her minimalist design aesthetic
Stember attended Tyler School of Art, Temple University, where she received her BFA from the Metals/Jewelry/CAD-CAM department in 2006. Stember supplemented her education at Tyler with summer workshops at Penland School of Crafts. These workshops allowed the artist to study with some of the most accomplished metals artists in the county.
It takes time to make great artwork. Most of the pieces we offer are created one at a time by the artist, and shipped directly to you from the artist’s studio.
