Marvin Lipofsky studied under Studio Glass pioneer Harvey Littleton at the University of Wisconsin in the late 1960s. Founder of the Glass Department at the California College of Arts and Crafts, Lipofsky is considered a pioneer himself, thanks to his efforts in teaching students and creating his own hot-formed glass sculptures. Filled with openings, curving shapes, and often translucent colors, Lipofsky’s organic and cloud-like “bubble” forms allow viewers to see through and study them inside and out.
