Berna Kilic, a resident of Milton, Ontario has been an active artist since 2004, creating art in the medium of lampworking, glass jewellery. Lampworking is a type of glasswork where a torch or lamp is primarily used to melt the glass. Once in a molten state, the glass is formed by blowing and shaping with tools and hand movements. It is also known as flameworking or torchworking. The earliest verifiable lampworked glass is probably a collection of beads thought to date to the fifth century BC.
Berna was born in Canakkale, a small city on the west coast of Turkey. She graduated from Istanbul University with a bachelor degree in business administration and started to work in the area of finance . While working in the world of finance, arts and crafts were always her oasis. In 2004 she decided to leave her practical career and the home of her childhood to follow the dream of dedicating herself to her art. Berna has established “Studio Ada” to create her beautiful glass beads, which then become stunning pieces of jewellery.

It was thirty years ago when a group of dedicated local artists had a vision of starting an art tour. The idea was simple; to allow the community to participate in the small but vibrant art community nestled in the beautiful surroundings of Uxbridge. For 2 days in September they opened their studios and shared their creative talents. This fledgling idea grew to become one of the most collaborative, best organized and artistically diversified art shows in southern Ontario. We are grateful indeed to the ones past and present who created this event and to the visitors from near and far. I am privileged to be part of this collaboration which inspires new talent to be showcased. We invite you all to celebrate with us this 30th anniversary of the Tour which I am sure will be inspirational and rewarding for all who attend. To all the artists and those who support them I wish you a memorable event. Max Kalinowski, Studio Tour Chair
