Find out more about Bernies Glass Creations who you can meet in person at The Fairy Tale Fair next Sunday 14th April…
My names Bernadette Stevenson & my glass company is called Bernies Glass Creations.
I’m a local Worthing Lady , whom has been working with traditional leaded stained glass & fused glass for the past 14 Years .
I am commissioned to make large , colourful leaded , stained glass windows to small window hangings , sculptures , table decorations & artefacts.
I also teach glass taster sessions in my workshop in my garden in central Worthing & offer gift vouchers , so a perfect gift for someone to have a creative experience & to take a beautiful piece of glass away that they have made themselves . I love teaching & cannot wait to open my kiln & see the creations made, by myself or others.!
I’m really looking forward to having a stall at The Fairy tale Easter event , St Barnabas has a special place in my heart & anything to help this wonderful hospice is good for me.
You will find my stall by its colourful artefacts from pictures ,window hangings , small sculptures ,clocks, & lots of seaside features such as colourful glass beach huts & sailing boats , after all we do live by the sea.
My best sellers are my bottle clocks , which are the original bottles & labels , that I flatten in my kiln & reattach labels & turn into wall mounted clocks .
I’m recycling glass, so good for the environment . A lot of people bring me a special bottle , that I turn into a clock & they can have as a momento, from a special event, such as a champagne bottle from their wedding day!
I feel it’s really important in our busy lives for everyone to take time out whether it be art, dance, singing or being creative in any form .When I take myself down to my workshop & create a piece , it doesn’t feel like work , it feels like my sanctuary & is very therapeutic . It takes the strain out of my life & everybody needs that!!
My motto is “Take time out for yourself”
I sell my works at The studio at The Lido on Worthing seafront promenade. And my bottle clocks in The Rose & Crown public house in Montague Street Worthing.
