Celeste Bernadette North, also known as Berni, is originally from Vincennes, Indiana. She majored in Fine Art specializing in ceramics at the University of Indiana and University of Louisville. Very much like many glass artists, Berni started out stained glass but quickly became interested in the art of hot glass. Today, much of her hand-crafted work bears the distinction of highly polished beveled glass with a combination of hand-blown glass and other materials meshed together to create beautiful works of art. Berni Enterprises is now located in Louisville, KY.
