Upcoming shows and exhibitions: 2018-2019

Thank you for a great show season in 2018.

Apologies to Tucson, Aspen, Evergreen, Chicago, State Street, HEA, Breckenridge main street, Salida, Pearl Street, and about 5 other shows, they were all kind enough to invite me, but I will be unable to attend.

And an especially big thank you to the folks who gave me my first show, the Cherry Arts Show Stanley 2015.

Thank you to all of my customers! What fun! Customers from Florida, Colorado, Hawaii, France, Boulder, and other places. Thank you to Adena Sladek and Fred Hall for artistic and booth support!

Why do I not show all of my newest designs on this website? For me, the biggest joy is watching people react when they look at one of my pieces, can't get that in an email or phone call.

Apologies, about 70 new works not shown on the web.

 

Oh, almost forgot, in response to your many questions, on a limited basis I will do commissions. They must be either a variation of a series, or new work for public display in a gallery, restaurant, public building, building facade, fence, room divider, window panel, museum display or other public works. Yes, I can go larger, up to 5 x 10 feet in a single piece, and building sized after that.

Here area few from the Cherry arts show: (if you click on the pictures, they get larger) (Of course, all designs are copyright (C) 2004-2018 by Mark Zirinsky, All rights reserved. )

"Bar Mitzvah" Torah breastplate

Novmber, 2008. Made to honor and commemorate the Bar Mitvahs of both of my sons, David and Robert. Made from a 600 pound black jade boulder found in Wyoming in 1958, and sterling silver. The Star of David is carved from one piece of jade, about 4 inches in diameter, weighs in at 116 carats. The tree is lost wax cast, soldered, and forged, the chain is fabricated. Both stones are set to the silver, the star using a reverse hidden flush channel set technique, the jade arc segment set with a reverse expansion tension set. The Hebrew engraving roughly translates to "Here my sons, honor your father's teachings and don't forsake your mother's Torah"

Overall height (without chain) is about 12 inches, about 8 inches wide.
