Stephanie Trenchard
Born 1962 in Champaign, Illinois
After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in painting from Illinois State University in 1984, Stephanie Trenchard began her professional career as a textile designer. Twelve years later in 2000, she started to work in the medium of studio glass as a way of combining her interest in two dimensional pattern designs with three dimensional objects.

Trenchard creates hand blown realistic glass objects that are later sprinkled with colored glass powders and then laid into a sand mold for casting. The finished pieces create the illusion of movement of a floating object over a painterly background.

Trenchard has co-curated Narratives in Glass at the Art Center in Highland Park, Illinois and conducted workshops in glass casting at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and in textile design at the Peninsula Art School in Fish Creek,Wisconsin. Her award winning work is represented in Wisconsin museum, corporate and university collections.
