Stephanie Trenchard Biography

(American, b. 1962)

Stephanie Trenchard Statement

"Currently, I am intrigued with the early Russian constructivism and cubism movement. The intellectual discourse of the time impacts the decorative and domestic arts of the period and often reflect the influence of women artists. This becomes a vehicle where I find a relationship between women and the process of making art. 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 within the context of the piece.

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. Hot glass is a perfect marriage for discussion about the fleeting moment.

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."
