Gifts of Art presents Image Vessels: Blown Glass
Sculptor Herb Babcock creates both monumental and human-scale work using metal, glass and stone. In the early years of the American Studio Glass Movement (1974-1984) Babcock’s sculptural and painterly expression utilized the vessel format. By layering color — both mass and line — between gathers of clear, molten glass, the full compositions are viewed through the vessel as three-dimensional. Babcock is Professor Emeritus, College for Creative Studies. He was Section Chair of the Glass Department where he taught for 40 years. He lives in Ann Arbor and built a new studio near U-M north campus in 2016.
