ALEX GABRIEL BERNSTEIN

Innovative, cast and carved glass sculptures often draw inspiration from nature. The son of two prominent NC glass artists, Bernstein grew up surrounded by creative people. As an adult, he discovered a process of fusing steel to glass. His work is held in many collections, including those of the Corning Museum of Glass, Glasmuseum Frauenau in Germany, the Burchfield-Penney Art Center in Buffalo, Rochester Institute of Technology, Mellon Financial Corporation, Wachovia Corporation and the Bascom Fine Art Center.

ALEX GABRIEL BERNSTEIN Statement

Abstract glass sculptures inspired from nature characterize the work of artist Alex Gabriel Bernstein.

“With each piece I make, I prepare for a journey, setting out to discover something new and exciting. Explaining my work, I use the metaphor of a poet. Talented poets do not write the same poems over and over, but they may use some of the same vocabulary in different poems. This is true of my sculpture.”
