Habatat Galleries was established in 1971 in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan. We are the oldest and largest gallery in the United States devoted exclusively to artists working with glass as their medium. Our mission is to service collections both public and private. We take an active interest in developing collections and promoting artist whom we feel should be recognized in our generation and beyond.
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.
