Glass artist Donna Eichholz, has recently designed a genocide-inspired piece of commemorative jewelry for use by the new film SCREAMERS and its partner, the Save Darfur Coalition. Click here for full Artist Statement on this piece.

SCREAMERS is an internationally produced documentary that covers the history of modern-day genocide and genocide denial, beginning with the Armenian Genocide in 1915, and how the world's inaction lead to other massacres. Eichholz’s unique design for the SCREAMERS glass jewelry is a symbol of an eternal spiral, which serves as a remembrance of the past and hope for the future.

"The Design of the commemorative pendent is a powerful reminder of the flames that still burn from past genocides and yet how important it is to respond the events of a current genocide in Darfur,” said Ben Prochazka, the Campaign Manager for The Save Darfur Coalition. “We hope this will be an important reminder: Let us not morn a genocide when we can stop one." The Save Darfur Coalition is an alliance of over 175 faith-based, advocacy and humanitarian organizations whose mission is to raise public awareness about the ongoing genocide in Darfur and to mobilize a unified response to the atrocities that threaten the lives of more than two million people in the Darfur region.

"Donna Eichholz's SCREAMERS pendant is a beautiful embodiment of survival from the tragedy of genocide,” said Elizabeth Chouldjian, the Communications Director of the Armenian National Committee of America, the largest and most influential Armenian American grassroots political organization in the U.S. “The past century has seen horrible crimes against inhumanity -- some which have been properly acknowledged with restitution ongoing and others where the unrepentant perpetrators of genocide remain unpunished. In each case, however, the survivors emerged as the shining beacons of truth and justice -leading humanity in its collective call ‘never again’. This pendant speaks to that commitment to survival and the international struggle to ensure that such injustices -- as we see today in Darfur -- are stopped and that the cycle of genocide is ended once and for all. "

Said Eichholz: “The spiral symbolizes power and independent movement. This commemorative piece focuses on movement of awareness and action, with the spiral flowing into a fire. Flames range on in memory of the many that have perished. As glass never deteriorates, this film burns on eternally - Lest We Never Forget! I am grateful for the honor to create this symbolic art for SCREAMERS and its noble cause.” 

Eichholz has studied with some of the greatest Master glassblowers and glass artists around the world, expanding her technique and repertoire to include work with “glass blowing” and “lamp working,” which is melting glass by use of a torch that is fueled by gas and oxygen. Her work has been seen in more than 20 countries with exhibits, galleries and festivals showcasing her glass creations. 

Though a Massachusetts native who currently resides in England, she is perhaps best known in South Africa, where her work has merited numerous substantial shows and media coverage. Recently, while serving as resident artist in a gallery in Cape Town, a photographer from The Cape Times stopped in for a visit, which led to an interview and photo shoot with the paper. The headline of this featured front page story was tellingly astute: “Glass Art Sends Donna Around the World.

Eichholz was commissioned by the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia, who host numerous gala parties each year. For the Enchanted Forest celebration in Africa, she was asked to create glass pieces that represented the theme of the party. Each of the guests of the Prince received a glass commemorative. Among other accomplishments, she is particularly proud to have appeared at the hugely popular Glastonbury Music Festival in Britain to create magnificent works of glass art.

The SCREAMERS commission marks another plateau’s in this remarkable artist’s career.
