Alison Berger Glassworks
West Hollywood glass blower Alison Berger has created a line of hefty sculptural vessels that create the illusion of being partially filled with water. Each hand-formed crystal piece is 10 to 13 inches tall and weighs 9 to 12 pounds. One has a buffed acid finish; another is etched with Leonardo da Vinci's writings on the nature of water. Prices start at $2,100. The pieces are sold through Blackman Cruz in Los Angeles, www.blackmancruz.com.
