Art - Glass - Stephanie Trenchard

Like poetry, the pieces tell stories without narratives. In the spirit of folk art, the imagery that I create is intuitive and speaks of my own fascination with home, nature, sexuality, art making, and death.  My pieces are also always about the moment; all the sensual and intellectual factors that define a particular time.  I’m trying to capture the brief nature of ripeness, fertility and richness on many levels. The swiftness of life is also the beauty of it.

Working with glass allows me to juxtapose a highly elaborate technique with spontaneous brushstrokes and gestures.  Like many craftsmen, my work is consumed with process, which is a great catalyst for delving into the subconscious, a release from will and ego.
