Elle Magazine, Jul. 2000 Elle Décor, Sep. 1998 Berger happened upon a glass-blowing studio in her native Dallas as a teenager, started nosing around, and soon began making herself an “unnecessary presence” there. A degree from RISD and work in Frank Gehry’s studio followed, a journey Elle Decoration, Nov. 1997 traced in her creations, which combine a draftsman’s discipline with a sculptural fluidity that has landed her works in the Axis, Sep. 1997 Corning Museum of Glass and the Cooper-Hewitt. The Daily Yomiuri Newspaper, Aug. 9 In Style, Mar. 1997 Her pieces are also functional – Berger’s artwork, like the pendant fixtures (above left), will (strikingly) light up a room. Among her other projects is the Balance Line collection of potential heirlooms (jars, bowls, vases) for Hermès - unusually, Interior Design, Jun. 1995 the company allowed Berger to sign each piece – and windows at the Comme des Garçons store in Tokyo. A love of anthropology draws Berger to historical forms: apothecary jars, measuring devices, Victorian-era flytraps. “I study ALL PUBLICATIONS BY YEAR different techniques and come up with my own idea of these centuries-old vessels. For instance, a Medici barometer that Galileo made or a fourth-century wedding goblet: There’s a mystery to historical objects and what they say about how people lived.” Adds Berger, “I think about how I can strip these things to their essence, then create something new and old at the + 2010 same time.” – Lorraine Cademartori + 2009 + 2008 + 2007 + 2006 – 2005 LA Times, Jun 17, 2004 LA Times Magazine, Feb 9, 2003 NY Times Home Design, Fall 2003 Elle, Jul 2000 + 2004 + 2003 PLACE ALL + 2002 + 2001 + 2000 + 1999 + 1998 + 1997 + 1995 PAGES

Berger’s Elle Decoration, Nov. 1997 handblown crystal glass light fixtures are sold through Holly Hunt showrooms nationwide and Plug Lighting in Los Angeles. Axis, Sep. 1997 Architectural Record: How does living in L.A. inspire your work? The Daily Yomiuri Newspaper, Aug. 9 In Style, Mar. 1997 Alison Berger: There is a really great quality of light. My office, where I do a lot of designing, is filled with light all day long, which really helps me study the glass. I mark time passing as the light moves throughout the studio. That’s the advantage Interior Design, Jun. 1995 of being in Los Angeles – more days are sunny than not. What also inspires me about being in Los Angeles is access to the amazing diversification of manufacturers that are here.

And sometimes surprises come Ell Décor, Jul. 2009 that I wasn’t going for, that are a lot more interesting than I had hoped.

Gallery Guide, Dec. 2001 On a recent day, Berger, thin and chic, with cheekbones as precise as cut crystal, is austerely in sync with her surroundings. Metropolitan Home, Nov/Dec 2001 As a designer of limited-edition lamps and vessels both practical and ornamental, Berger resolved in 1995 to be “one of Flaunt, Nov. 2001 those 10 people” who could make her living as an artist. She got her wish. The Corning Museum of Glass in Corning, N.Y., New York Times - Home Design, Sep. 2001 now has three of her pieces. Her retail line is available in design stores and, beginning this month, at Bergdorf Goodman in New York and Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills. Hermès commissioned an exclusive line of Berger’s crystal tableware, the Architectural Digest, Jun. 2001 Balance Collection. And Holly Hunt showrooms sell her lighting designs. Hermès, Spring 2001 Elle Décor, Feb. 2001 But Berger’s work glows with more than commercial possibilities. Glass borders on an obsession with her, a passion that + 2000 began in her family’s glass-walled house in Dallas. She started blowing glass at age 15. After attending the Rhode Island School of Design, she joined the studio of the glass artist Dale Chihuly before studying architecture at Columbia University.

World of Interiors, Dec. 1999 + 1998 Proof of Berger’s obsession: the 1920’s-vintage Los Angeles apartment that until recently was her home. (A few months ago, she moved her furniture and glass – carefully – to West Hollywood.) Her aesthetic is fundamentally ascetic: white walls, Wallpaper*, Nov. 1998 wooden floors, black leather furniture. But glass imparts a liquid beauty, blurring the rooms’ hard lines. The studio is shot New York Magazine, Oct. 1998 through with light bent by glass bottles, screens, even a glass-topped stool. “Space is transformed through glass,” she says, Elle Décor, Sep. 1998 “by the way it acts like a beacon to draw in the light.” + 1997 Floor-to-ceiling windows send light through a glass-paneled screen, which is illuminated by a glass-shaded lamp. Elle Decoration - Germany, Nov. 1997 (“Lampshade” cannot be the right word: Berger’s glass cones warm, rather than subdue, the light.) An antique lawyer’s Glass + Art, Sep. 1997 cabinet is loaded with lead-crystal vases, decanters, amphorae and bowls – a hip revision of the midcentury cabinet that Axis, Sep. 1997 turned a middle-class family’s crystal into museum pieces. – Frances Anderton Daily Yomiuri Newspaper - Japan, Aug. 1997 Berger often designs with the sun’s cycle in mind. “I could look at a piece like this,” she says, pointing to an exquisite bottle Exhibition Comme Des Garçons, Jul. 1997 made of hollow glass fused to a cast base, “and say that at the end of the day, the light comes down and mades this part Town & Country, Apr. 1997 brilliant.” In Style, Mar. 1997 + 1996 Berger eschews fussiness. Her pare-down aesthetic is especially apparent in her clean-lined reworkings of the vessels of ancient Greece and Rome. At the same time, she embraces guild-style craftsmanship over modernist standardization. In Elle Décor, Sep. 1998 workshops in East Los Angeles, a few skilled workers create her pieces. Some objects, like the fused bottle, which required + 1995 a previously untried technique, take months to develop. “These cannot be done with molds,” she says. “They are almost a Interior Design, Jun. 1995 defiance of mass production.” PLACE ALL Berger’s work and environment reflect, in part, the current tendency to enshrine and sanctify precious domestic objects. But they also express her genuine, almost spiritual attachment to her medium, for which this space of “sun-comprehending glass” is the only proper temple.

The 162-year-old French luxury-goods company teamed up with Alison Berger – an artist, architect, and a production designer who works in glass – to “create the new heirlooms: everyday objects Elle Decoration, Nov. 1997 like Grandma’s silver that become more valuable as they age.” The results include oil and vinegar, salt and pepper, and Axis, Sep. 1997 cereal, milk, and sugar sets; water jugs; and thick water glasses that Berger likens to “balls of crystal.” The Daily Yomiuri Newspaper, Aug. 9 In Style, Mar. 1997 “There’s an old Hermès saying that only the horse knows how the saddle fits,” says Berger.
