Aliso Berger

Alison Berger is an artist whose medium is light and whose material is glass. Whether designing light fixtures, objects, furnishings or large-scale sculptures, she uses age-old glass blowing techniques to create glass forms that transcend time and capture light. Derived from historic forms that have been stripped down to their essence, her work feels simultaneously old world and modern.

 

Using glass as her primary medium and the past as her inspiration, the Los Angeles-based artist has explored her fascination with light in a stunningly diverse and ever-evolving body of work – vases, sculptures, drawings, lighting, site installations. Blurring boundaries long before it became a trend, she’s moved easily and with considerable success between the worlds of art, craft, design, architecture, fashion and film, with technical mastery and a sure vision as her constants. She draws from myriad influences and eras – fourth-century Roman glass, baroque floral still lifes, old scientific instruments, her own flea-market finds – to create timeless narratives. Whatever the scale or format, her objective remains the same: history reinterpreted, concept distilled to essence.” American Craft Magazine.
