Gary Berner is a practicing dentist in Oak Harbor. He and his wife, Nancy, are natives to Oak Harbor. He has been blowing glass as a hobby for the last 8+ years at Due Vetro Studios in Oak Harbor. Recently Gary has been combining fused glass into the blown glass technique, which allows more interesting color detail and arrangements within the blown glass. Gary says, "I am inspired by colors in the natural world which I incorporate into my art. My work has been exhibited at the Museum of Northwest Art in La Connor as well as the Garry Oak Gallery and Earthenworks Gallery in Port Townsend and La Connor. I also participate in local art shows. My patients are treated to an ever evolving art experience when they visit my dental office, where I love to share my passions for dentistry and glass."
