« Judaica Now! »: Goblets and Kiddush Cups of the Bezalel School Exhibition at Rishon Le Zion Museum
Iris Tutnauer was born, lives and works in Jerusalem. She graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Art, Silversmith Department, in 1990.
Iris’s unique work integrates contemporary design and exceptional craftsmanship to express traditional Jewish concepts and values.
Her Judaica pieces have been purchased by the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, the Jewish Museum in NY and the North Carolina Museum of Art, in addition to several private collections.
In creating her Kiddush cup Iris Tutnauer finds her inspiration from a Kiddush cup with a lid from her grandfather’s home in Iraq. Tutnauer excels in passing on the sense of nostalgia and grants a presence to her childhood memories together with her experiences as a grown woman at the present time.
