Alexis Berger was born and raised in Marin, California. She graduated from SOTA (School of the Arts) in San Francisco where her strong portfolio led to acceptance at design schools across the nation. She graduated from RISD (Rhode Island School of Design) in 2005 with a BA in industrial design. Alexis’ training in design and craftsmanship using a wide variety of materials and methods put in place the foundation skills necessary to teach herself lampworking after graduation.
Love of family and the Bay Area brought Alexis back to California where she worked with two San Francisco architectural firms.
Her freelance position enabled her to simultaneously develop her lampworking skills. In 2008 she began to work full time in her
Berkeley glassworks studio. Her work has secured entry in juried art
shows, galleries and select shops.
Alexis lives with her husband Sam in the East Bay, they share a love of music, dogs, friends, and cooking.
Notes about Alexis’ work:
