Gifts of Art presents Glass Cakes at Taubman

March 23, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Artist Janet Kelman’s glass cakes are a perfect fusion of her love of glass and love of baking. Each colorful slice or cupcake invites sampling, while her mirror cakes are intriguing brain teasers.

Kelman began her love affair with glass in 1970. While studying chemistry in college, she watched as the glassblower in her department created scientific equipment, inspiring her to later teach herself lampworking (glass worked over a torch) and open a hot glass studio. Kelman bakes with glass at her home studio in Ann Arbor.

Her work is now on display at Michigan Medicine. Here’s how you can check it out:

Where: Gifts of Art Gallery, Taubman Health Center North Lobby, Floor 1
