Is it the use of colour or the extraordinary shapes of Marvin Lipofsky's blown glass sculptures that is more remarkable? A mixture of subtle shading and joyful bursts of hue on glass that is evocative of broken eggshells or seashells makes for eye catching and keeping sculpture. The colours move in tune with the organic forms whose curves and flow can even resemble that of flowers in abstraction.
