Babette Bloch is a pioneer in the use of laser-cut and water-jet stainless steel to create evocative works of art. Her sculptures explore form and the interplay between object and light, reflect their environments, and expand the ways in which stainless steel is used in contemporary art. Bloch received both classical and modern training, at the UC Davis studying with legendary artists Wayne Thiebaud, Robert Arneson, and Manuel Neri. Her personal style embraces her eclectic tastes, her sometimes-whimsical visions, her pleasure in aesthetics, and her technical curiosity.
Bloch's site-specific public works and one-of-a-kind limited editions are in the permanent collections of Brookgreen Gardens, SC; Orlando Museum of Art, FL; Fort Wayne Museum of Art, Fort Wayne, IN; Mattatuck Museum of Art, Waterbury, CT; B'nai B'rith Klutznick Museum, Washington, DC; Hudson Heritage Farm, Ganges, MI; Maryland Institute of Art, Baltimore, MD; and numerous private collections in Europe and the U.S.
