"Believe and you cannot fail!"

Through the use of sand-cast and blown glass, Jacqueline Berting celebrates the progression of life and its air of mystery; the boundaries we face, how we deal with the obstacles, and the spirit we create. Born in St. Gregor, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1966, Jacqueline attended Red Deer College in 1987 and Sheridan College in Oakville Ontario, 1987-1990, where she majored in Glass. She furthered this education by studying Iron Art and Blacksmithing in Penland, North Carolina in 1990. Her artistic foundation set, she went on to complete the astounding Glass Wheatfield in 1991. Perhaps her most famous work to date, this piece of installation glass art is comprised of 14,000 waist-high glass wheat stalks, each piece individually hand-cut and lamp-worked. It is on permanent display at the Regina Plains Museum.

Established by Jacqueline and her husband, fellow artisan James Clark, Berting Glass Studios in Cupar, Saskatchewan employs several people from the community to meet the demands of over 150 galleries and other vendors. The studio continues to accept commissions for installations throughout Canada, and in December 2005, Jacqueline was awarded a Centennial Medal and Celebrations of the Arts pin for her contribution to Saskatchewan through her art.
