Alison Berger Glassworks
“My friend Alison Berger is a virtuoso,” Holly once wrote. Her obsession with quality of light and commitment to age-old glass blowing techniques result in forms that are both contemporary and timeless. “Her particular genius lies in her alchemic ability to meld glass and light, transmuting the two into unique and luminous forms that are functional yet transcendent.”
Berger fuses nature and architecture to create unique, iconic pieces. Born in Dallas, TX, she studied at the Rhode Island School of Design and the Columbia University School of Architecture. She worked as an architect for many years with Bausman-Gill and Associates and then with Frank Gehry. In 1995, she devoted herself fully to glass design.
