Feleksan Onar, born and raised in Turkey, completed her undergraduate degree economics and music history at Cornell University and graduate studies at Harvard Business School. She works out of her atelier in Pera, Istanbul as well as in Berlin and Murano. The artist’s works are housed in important public collections worldwide including Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Pergamon Museum, Berlin; Riihimaki Glass Museum, Finland; Contemporary Glass Art Museum, Eskisehir, among others as well as private collections. Her most recent solo exhibitions have been held at Arcas Museum, Izmir; Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Pergamon Museum, Berlin and Magazzino Gallery at Palazzo Polignac, Venice.

Onar educated herself formally in all sorts of glass making techniques: fusing and slamping, kiln casting, flame working, hot-forming and blowing, cold-working and practices to incorporate several techniques in her works to present the amazing qualities of the material she has fallen in love with.

 ‘Glass not only expresses my past and present, but also my anxieties and expectations for future. Through glass I speak, breath and live.’
