Ralph Berger’s creativity evolved after taking a welding class in 2006 and found himself captured by the feeling of being lost in the creative process. He incorporates his intricate designs into mostly "found objects" such as: mill saw blades, buoys, tanks, and smudge pots
Ralph’s sculptures are a study of the relationship between positive and negative space, giving equal significance to both. Recently when judging one of Ralph’s sculptures, Annette Wells reflected "It is what is not there that makes this piece outstanding."
Ralph’s sculptures are in public, private, and corporate collections throughout the United States including
- Tryon International Equestrian Center, Mill Spring, NC
- Hampton Inn, Roanoke, VA
- Memorial Sloan Kettering on Long Island, NY
- Reid Hospital in Richmond, IN
- Bacharach Institute for Rehabilitation in Pomona, NJ
- North Carolina Arboretum, Asheville, NC
- Shire Pharmaceuticals, PA
- Kennedy Health Systems, Washington Township, NJ
- Snowbird Mountain Lodge, Robbinsville, TN
