Sam-Emma is made of ceramic and is approximately 11″ H and 8″ W at the bottom.



Architect Stanley Tigerman hits the mark with his whimsical cookie jar in yellow, blue and red. Named after both his father and mother, Sam-Emma combines architect Tigerman’s frequent use of exaggerated features such as a small head and “winged arms” to a traditional body. The result is nothing short of a big smile to match that special cookie pulled from the jar itself.

"I am committed to the creation of a contemporary and authentically American architecture that is characteristic of its own time and place. This philosophy leads me to assemble the standard ingredients essential to architectural production; to interact, to question, to challenge, to collaborate in order to reach a consensus and then to create a building that represents the collective energies of the client and society."
