Unique blown glass by NY duo Bengt Hokanson & Trefny Dix.
“We think of our blown glass vessels as sculptures. The murrini patterns and color washes in our work are used to emphasize every aspect of the sculptural forms. 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, seascapes and marine life forms have all been inspirations for our work. We try to capture in our glass the color, the noise, the shape, the feel of our abstract world.”
