by Hokanson Dix Glass
East Hampton, NY
Bengt Hokanson and Trefny Dix collaborate in creating original glass art defined by vibrant colors, bold canework, and simple, organic forms. Their work has been influenced by everything from classic Italian glassblowing to world textiles and urban graffiti. These elements inspire each piece to be about action that is trapped for a moment in time. The simple forms suggest just enough movement to emphasize the drama of their saturated, luminescent colors.
Hokanson and Dix use a combination of traditional Italian and Swedish glassblowing techniques as well as many experimental techniques that they have developed in their studio. Murrini and overlays are incorporated, and the incalmo process is often used. The artists create depth in each piece by using both transparent and opaque colors.
