A native of Chicago, Ira Sherman studied biology and chemistry in
college. "I would seek refuge from the rigidity of my studies and
spend my free time in the Sculpture and Metalsmithing studio."  
Sherman honed his Design and Metalsmithing skills, becoming
an award-winning jeweler. His success with jewelry design
melded with a passion for understanding the religious
significance of Judaic Art  led Sherman to become a prolific
designer of  fine Sterling Silver Judaica, Judaic sculpture and
Institutional Jewish Architectural Design in bronze and steel.
In 1988, 1991 and 1997, Sherman was a guest instructor at the
Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem, Israel. The
Colorado Federation of the Arts awarded Sherman the 1993 Arts
Innovation Award in the visual arts. The Smithsonian Renwick
Gallery has acquired one of Sherman's designs for their
permanent collection. Sherman's Judaic art can be seen many
other public and private and public art collections
.

Nancy Sedar Sherman has been a “material girl” since childhood. Growing up in a family with a rich history in quilting, tailoring and
fashion design it was only natural to follow in the footsteps of a Mother, Grandmother and Great-grandmother who passed on their
passion. Sedar Sherman earned a degree in Fashion Design from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York in 1974. She
returned to Denver in the late 70s  to pursue her own business in fashion design and liturgical textile design.
Sherman gained experience  with JHB international as a Fashion Coordinator and later as an industrial computer embroidery
specialist at Melco Industries.  For the past fifteen years Sedar Sherman has directed Sherman Judaica Design into producing quality
embroidered fiber arts primarily used in the creation of beautiful Judaic Torah Covers, Tallisim,  Wall Hangings  as well as “wearable
art”.
