Trefny Dix & Bengt Hokanson

East Hampton, NY

Our blown glass vessels are sculptures. The murrini patterns and color washes in our work are used to emphasize every aspect of the sculptural forms and bring to life the glass itself. The curves are wrapped with color; tall forms are latticed with surface murrinis and clear windows are splashed with abstract murrini patterns. The glass's transparency, its rich color and its ability to become any form are all at play in our work. We use a combination of Italian, Swedish and experimental techniques to create our glass forms. Modern painting and sculpture, world textiles, urban graffiti, natural landscapes and marine life have all been inspirations for our work.
