Historical Context:
Herb Babcock’s initial concentration was metal sculpture, but a 1969 glass blowing class altered his personal aesthetic. For the next few decades of his career, Babcock explored precariously stacking metal and colored glass his “Pillared Series” of sculptures. Today, Babcock focuses more heavily on his glass work, and has taken up the artform of stained-glass. He has managed large stained-glass projects throughout Michigan including a set of windows for the St. Clair Shores Public Library and multiple windows at the Huntington Woods Public Library.
