In 1992, Berting Glass was established after the unveiling of the Glass Wheatfield, a salute to farmers, encompassing 14,000 waist high glass wheat stalks. Once unveiled in the Mackenzie Art Gallery Meadow, people from all over the country were requesting a smaller version, a symbol of the grand project, and their heritage. Through the generous support she has received, she is able to employee people from the community and set up a hot glass studio.
Jacqueline supplies glass gifts to over 70 gift shops and galleries across Canada, as well as creates one of a kind art works, designs awards, commissions, and installations which can be viewed on www.bertingglass.com. These glass gifts have been presented to dignitaries, celebrities, delegates, members of the Royal Family, the President of the Ukraine, and NHL Stars. They are a unique gift which have become the perfect symbol of Saskatchewan.
Jacqueline donates to countless charities and fundraisers across Canada and received a Medal of Honor in 2005 for her contribution to Saskatchewan through her art, as well as a Celebration of the Arts Award.
