If You Thirst for a Homeland: Flame-worked glass by Dafna Kaffeman

by | Oct 8, 2021 | What’s Happening

Saturday, November 6, 7:30 pm, Perry Glass Studio or via Zoom


Currently on display at the Chrysler Museum of Art, Dafna Kaffeman’s exhibit of exquisitely crafted plant replicas express the complexities of modern life in Israel.

Inspired by the natural world, each specimen in its botanical form can be found in Israel, reflecting the natural world that surrounds Kaffeman at home.

Each glass piece Kaffeman has created is mounted onto fabric, and surrounded by quotes, many from current events in Israel—either in Hebrew or Arabic—furthering the paradox of the inherent beauty and conflict in her home.

Join the Chrysler Museum’s Perry Glass Studio, as part of the Jewish Community Relations Council of United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, Simon Family JCC, and Community Partners’ 11th Annual Israel Today Forum, to hear from Kaffeman as she describes her process for creating such beautiful pieces.

Registration is required. Free to Museum members, it is $5 for non-members. Limited in person space available. To RSVP, visit https://chrysler.org/event/visiting-artist-lecture-with-dafna-kaffeman/.
