Luce Center Quote

"Each piece of glass has its own personality. I try to reveal it by cutting it open and shaping it." Marvin Lipofsky, Oakland Museum of California, 2003

Luce Center Label

Marvin Lipofsky will spend long hours in his Berkeley studio manipulating his hot-worked forms into their final shapes. Form #25 suggests a seedpod with its opaque, rough stem splitting open to reveal clear, shiny glass.
