Gary Rosenthal, the renowned sculptor, combines copper, brass and steel with fused glass to create his beautiful sculptures. He has designed a special “Women of Valor” series which incorporates a geometric glass piece in shades of pink. A portion of the profits from these pieces are donated to help find a cure for breast cancer. At this event, you will have the opportunity to help with this wonderful mitzvah by assembling pieces which Mr. Rosenthal will later fuse to his beautiful metal sculptures. We will be provided with kits that simply need to be assembled. NO ARTISTIC ABILITY IS NEEDED! You will then have the opportunity to purchase your finished sculpture at a discounted price. Examples of items are above. Please see link below for the entire list.
