Glass artist Beth Lipman produces large-scale, three-dimensional renditions of still lifes in clear blown glass, which are glittering depictions of abundance and chaos. In Bancketje (2003), 15 people worked with her to create over 500 components found on the table, a metaphor for the aftermath of an excessive banquet. Lipman has more recently begun producing photographs of her assembled sculptures, scaling the final prints to actual size and then destroying and recycling the glass.
