Nicole Berger grew up in a tiny town in rural Pennsylvania in the 90’s, a decade that is influential on her work as she embraces the simple shapes, bright colors and busy layouts found in the palettes and design styles prominent at that time. She offers comfort and reliability by presenting themes from 90s pop culture in her work.
The journey to glass began while she was studying at Temple University in Philadelphia. She took a glass class on a whim and became obsessed with figuring out all of the possibilities that working with glass offered and ended up with a double major in Glass and Communications/Advertising. Upon graduation, she honed her skills by apprenticing with a renowned flame worker. Nicole moved to Colorado in 2016 where she shares a studio space with 5 other glass blowers. Her coveted pieces are a favorite amongst collectors!
