Trefny Dix received a B.F.A. in Sculpture from Indiana University, Bloomington, IN in 1993. She learned glass casting while working at Studio Inferno, New Orleans, LA and has studied glass casting and glass blowing at Pilchuck Glass School, Stanwood, WA, and taken classes at The Studio at Corning in New York. She was featured in a two-person exhibition, Twenty Years of Glass - Bengt Hokanson and Trefny Dix at the Living Arts Center in Tulsa, OK in 2017. Her work has been included in local exhibitions at the Victor D’Amico Institute of Art in Amagansett, NY, Ashawagh Hall in East Hampton, NY, and has exhibited nationally in Pennsylvania, Washington D.C., Arizona, New Mexico, and Colorado, among others. She received an artist grant from the New York Foundation for the Arts in 2001. Her sculptures explore concepts of time and travel, representing a tying together of old and new. She creates objects that capture the energy of this union and make one imagine how the present is inseparable and dependent upon the past, using glass as the medium to translate this concept: glass refracts light; light is energy, energy describes movement. Her sculptures are portraits of a restless, mysterious energy; strange and alive, they are interceptors of the past and the future. Dix is also co-owner of Hokanson Dix Glass, a hot glass studio located in East Hampton, NY since 1991. She lives and works in East Hampton, NY.
