West Huron Sculptors
416 West Huron Street, Ann Arbor 48103, 734-646-1865
Open By Appointment Only
West Huron Sculptors’ studio is housed in what was once the Ann Arbor Ice House. The insulated locker now functions as a sculpture storage area. The small shared single room studio contains sculpture stands, shelving and a clay work area. On display is the figurative work of the six sculptors that share the studio. Each artist’s sculpture differs in style, size and finish.
From classical bronze busts to multi-media ceramic figures all depict the human form through the individual artist’s expression in clay.
The studio is located in the gray building across the street from the Ann Arbor YMCA.

About Babs

I'm a narrative sculptor navigating her way through the ever-changing currents in what feels like an art ocean. Whether appreciating the calm rhythm of calls for art and exhibiting, or waiting to catch a big wave of inspiration to take me to the top. I just love being in the water. Formerly a pickle packer, theater major, crisis counselor and occupational therapist with a BA in Communications and a BS in Occupational Therapy, only to discover I've always been an artist. My work grows from a strong connection to people and a passion for discovering the beauty in ordinary things. I sculpt figuratively in clay, utilizing the female form and women’s themes. Frequently my inspiration is drawn from childhood memories and my own short poems. Like each of us as humans every work is uniquely influenced by the past and present and has a narrative.

  1. I really love the face on this piece, and the symbolism of the door leading to her heart.

    Thank you so much for your comment and taking time to look. I’m fascinated by what is hidden from our immediate view. There is always more to see, if we just look a little harder.
