Through My Lens

43 – Glass Art

Posted in Washington DC Places and People by lwroffee on August 28, 2009

When I first saw Beth Lipman’s “Bancketje,” long tables covered with clear blown and lampworked glass objects in the Renwick Art Gallery, my thoughts were about a fantastic photo opportunity.  I returned and tried.  Renwick’s description notes that, “by rendering the scene in transparent glass and skillfully blending the various components, Lipman demands that the piece be seen as a whole, not an assemblage of individual objects.”  The comment is quite correct.  A close view didn’t do it justice and neither did a view with a very wide angle lens.  It was fun to try, however.
