Booth 184

Berna Kilic is a glass artist specialising in beads, jewellery and figurines. She learned the process of making glass beads from various glass artists and workshops, and years of self practice. She creates her beads one at a time in her studio in Georgetown, Ontario using the technique of lamp working.
Lamp working is an ancient type of glass work that uses a gas fuelled torch to melt clear and coloured glass rods. Once in a molten state, the glass is formed by blowing and shaping with a variety of tools and hand movements. The lamp work bead is then placed in a kiln and held at 950F degrees to anneal, which toughens the glass and reduces brittleness thereby making the glass bead stable.
Berna’s work can be seen in her own studio and showroom at the Williams Mill Creative Art Studios in Glen Williams, Gardiner Museum Toronto, on her website, and on her Etsy shop. Berna is also a proud member of Stratford Art in the Park Association and showcases her work every summer in Stratford.
