About this item
Obsessed with light for as long as she can remember, Alison Berger used to catch fireflies as a child and put them in glass jars - an activity that has inspired more than twenty years' worth of exquisite work in handblown glass. In this stunning monograph, Berger presents her evocative light fixtures, functional objects, furnishings, and large-scale sculptures in combination with the diverse imagery and objects that inspired them. Using age-old glass-blowing techniques to create essential forms that capture light and its reflection in different configurations and times of day, Berger's unique process and its rich results feel at once Old World and modern. Featuring more than 200 full-color photographs of Berger's glassworks, sketches, sources, and studio, Alison Berger: Glass and Light celebrates the magic of light and the medium of glass as brought together by one of America's most innovative artists.
