Dafna Kaffeman graduated in 1999 from the Gerrit Rietveld Academy, Amsterdam, and in 2001 received a Master in Fine Arts from the Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam. She had one-person shows, among others, at the American University Museum in Washington (2011) and the Lorch-Seidel Gallery in Berlin (2006, 2010) and participated in many group shows in Europe and the United States. In 2011 she was awarded the Prize for the Advancement of the Arts (Israel). "Using a botanic lexicon that reaches into cultural practices of commemoration, sacrifice and mourning, the artist blends local values in meticulously crafted glass and embroidery work." (From the catalogue of the winners of the 2011 Minister of Culture prizes). Kaffeman's works are exhibited in the collections of various museums, such as the Corning Museum of Glass, N.Y., the Montreal Museum of Contemporary Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
