Feleksan Onar (b. 1966, Ankara) brings a unique blend of academic pursuits and artistic passion to her creative journey. With a bachelor’s degree in economics and music history from Cornell University and further studies at Harvard Business School, the ideas behind her intricate, emotionally charged glass sculptures are multifarious, transcending any geographical or historical boundaries. Onar uses ateliers in Pera, Istanbul, Berlin, and Murano, her artworks taking abstract and unconventional forms created by techniques such as fusing, casting, blowing, flameworking, and cold-cut glass.

Feleksan Onar has exhibited globally, most recently at the Museum of Islamic Art, Doha (2023-24). Her works are featured in public collections worldwide, including the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the Pergamon Museum, Berlin; the Finnish Glass Museum, Riihimäki; the Contemporary Glass Art Museum, Eskisehir; and Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden.
