Michael Galmer

Michael Izrael Galmer is a silver sculptor who has been creating works of silver & gold since immigrating with his family to the US from the former Soviet Union in 1981. Having obtained a degree in engineering and a doctorate in physics & chemistry from Moscow University, in the US he chose to pursue his creative interests. He experimented and improved upon the classic style of repoussé by perfecting his skills and inventing creative and unique alternatives to silver making. His  extraordinary talent was swiftly discovered by elite connoisseurs; Tiffany & Co. Lenox Company soon followed, as did Gorham, Kirk Stieff, and numerous retailers nationwide. Ultimately, arts and Jewish museums, as well as historical societies began to recognize the unique contemporary talent of the silversmith as well. Today, Galmer’s works have been on display at numerous exhibits in America and are now on permanent collection at John Hopkins University’s Evergreen Museum & Library, Cooper Hewitt of the Smithsonian Museum of Design, Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Newark Museum and the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center NY.
