Hokanson + Dix opened their first glass studio in Greenport, NY, in 1996.

Bengt Hokanson received a B.A. in Anthropology from Tulane University in 1991. He also studied glass blowing at Tulane from 1987-1991. He worked as a gaffer for Gene Koss, Head of Glass, Tulane University, from 1991-93. He studied at Pilchuck Glass School, Stanwood, WA for many sessions between 1991-2002. In 1993, Bengt was a T.A. for Pike Powers at Pilchuck Glass School. Again in 1998, he was a T.A. for Gene Koss at Pilchuck. Bengt has also taken classes at The Studio at Corning, Corning, NY, and at Urban Glass, Brooklyn, NY. He has been working in glass for more than 25 years.

Trefny Dix received a B.F.A. in Sculpture from Indiana University Bloomington, Indiana 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. Trefny has also taken classes at The Studio at Corning, NY. She has been working in glass for 19 years.

In 2013, Bengt and Trefny relocated to Bengt’s childhood home in East Hampton, NY, after the period in Greenport followed by four years in Colorado where they also ran a successful glass studio and gallery. They were able to move their glass studio to their home and the move has reignited their love for the beautiful maritime environment that surrounds them on Long Island.

Andy Stenerson’s first experience with hot glass was as a student at the Cleveland Institute of Art in 1983. He was instantly in awe of the fluidity and physicality of the material, and has continued to blow glass for thirty years.

After graduating with a BFA in fine art, Andy moved to Oakland, and worked in the glass foundry of John Lewis. From there, he moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where he had his own glass studio with Kim Petro from 1994-2002. Andy has studied with masters Lino Tagliapietra and Pino Signoretto, and has taught at Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, WA, and at Urban Glass in Brooklyn, NY.

Andy lives and works in East Hampton, NY.  He makes one of a kind sculptures, lighting elements, and vessels, and collaborates on projects with architects and designers.

Marianne Weil received her B.A. in sculpture from Goddard College in Vermont and M.F.A. in Sculpture from the School of Visual Arts. She continued her sculpture training apprenticing foundry artisans and stone carvers in Pietrasanta, Italy. She taught sculpture at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and Haverford College where she received several Mellon grants to collaborate with faculty from Swarthmore and Bryn Mawr Colleges on interdisciplinary projects in art history, anthropology and archaeology. She is on the faculty of the City University of New York, College of Staten Island’s Department of Performing and Creative Arts, where she teaches sculpture. Weil’s sculpture is exhibited internationally, featured in public and private collections here and abroad.

Marianne lives and works in Orient, NY.
