Biography

Lives and works in Switzerland.

Contemporary master glassmaker, Simon Berger speaks a singular plastic language by exploring the material in depth. His material is the glass that he strikes, lacerates or cracks with a hammer. The glass becomes the support of an expression by impacts which uses transparency. The closer and shorter the blows are, the more the shadows and contrasts increase. The wider the stroke, the more translucent beams are created. In his hands, there is nothing destructive about the hammer. It acts as an effect amplifier.
