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.
The artists' love for white glass and the effects of light on the white inspired them to create this beautiful, statuesque piece. The white bubble incalmo sits below rising columns of circular white murrinis which are topped with a crown of citron dots.
