Blown glass artwork on display at Michigan Medicine
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 in the 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.
