About

Marvin Lipofsky 1938 - 2016

Lipofsky approached glass as an organic, sculptural medium; resulting in his signature amorphic forms. Many of his works are colorful “bubbles” of glass. Often semi-transluscent, they allow the viewer to examine their depths. He is best known for the organic form of his pieces. His glass sculptures have been featured in more than 40 solo exhibitions; his work is included in numerous private collections and in more than 100 museums and corporate collections throughout the world. A two-time recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship, Lipofsky was a pioneer in the contemporary glass movement. He taught and lectured at more than 300 workshops, conferences, and universities all over the world, as well as being a co-founder of the Glass Art Society.
