Artist in Residence
Join us for this special opportunity to experience internationally renowned artists in action as they demonstrate how contemporary artists work, implement designs, collaborate and meld concepts into the physical. The Henry Ford has invited four glass artists to work in the Greenfield Village Glass Shop alongside our artists.
One of Japan's leading figures in glass art, Hiroshi Yamano is known for his diverse skills and innovative surface applications. Drawn to nature, Hiroshi uses the fish as his personal symbol to describe his journeys from Japan to America, traversing the ocean. He is co-founder of Ezra Glass Studio in Japan and chairman of the glass department and head of the craft department at Osaka Art University.
Working predominately in metal fabrication, Herb Babcock began incorporating metal and glass in sculpture in 1983. His Pillared Series is a metaphor for life. He was chair of the Glass Department at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit from 1974 to 2013. His sculptures are exhibited locally at Habatat Galleries in Royal Oak, Michigan.
