Joy Stember is an award-winning Judaica artist and metalsmith from the Philadelphia area. She received her BFA in Metals at the Tyler School of Art at Temple University. She has showcased her work at national competitions and publications.
Her handmade pieces are fabricated by scoring and folding sheets of pewter to make three-dimensional works of art. The gorgeous textures embossed into the metal works are pulled from many influences, such as repetition in natural urban landscapes and mid-century design.
Stember’s goal is to encourage the importance of American high-end craft in the modern home by creating contemporary heirlooms for a new generation of collectors.
