Trenton Quiocho is an artist from Washington State who has worked as a glassblower and teaching assistant at the Chihuly Boathouse in Seattle, the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, and Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood. Highly-influenced by the Venetian tradition, his work focuses on vessels and sculpture, utilizing a variety of colors and applications. With more than 10 years of experience, Quiocho likes to refine his technique and search for his own “authentic voice,” he says.

In 2017, Quiocho was a mentor for the Expanding Horizons class at The Studio of The Corning Museum of Glass, in partnership with the Robert M. Minkoff Foundation. Quiocho, working in tandem with Pavlína Čambalová and Erika Tada, is a recipient of the 2018 Collaborative Residency program. With the full resources of The Studio, the group aspires to combine each of their unique strengths in traditional Czech engraving, glassblowing, pâte de verre, and kiln casting. Their work will seek to embody the emotions inherent in the experience of making glass. Drawing from varied cultures, styles, ideas, and knowledge, Čambalová, Quiocho, and Tada will express the human faces, sceneries, natures, patterns and memories that each bring to the table.

“The project gives us the opportunity to experience new techniques, to share our sensibilities and viewpoints, and to influence each other for the future,” they said.
