Dafne Kaffemen: What Could be Sweeter Than Going to Paradise?
Israeli artist Dafna Kaffeman’s delicate glass sculptures mimic organic forms such as leaves, fur and flowers. Her small works and large scale, dynamic installations  often deal with issues raised by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The installation “Mantis Relgiosa,” based on a statement made by a young Palestinian, consists of lifelike lampworked glass objects and found handkerchiefs embroidered by Jewish  men from Israel.
