Add event to my calendar

Join us as we welcome visiting glass artist Dafna Kaffeman, during Lunch on Fridays from 12:15 to 1:30pm Friday, September 9 in the Cleveland Institute of Art’s Peter B. Lewis Theater.

Inspired by nature, the art of Dafna Kaffeman conveys the complexities of life in modern Israel. Kaffeman creates exquisitely crafted plant replicas using flame-worked glass. These botanical specimens reflect the natural world of the artist’s homeland. The glass plants are combined with Hebrew and Arabic words printed or embroidered on soft white fabric, including handkerchiefs which are often associated with Jewish cultural practices of celebration, commemoration, sacrifice, and mourning. Each plant the artist renders in glass has its own cultural and historical meaning.

Kaffeman’s exhibition If You Thirst for a Home Land is on view at the Roe Green Gallery of the Jewish Federation of Cleveland.
