I’m Trevor Ninos, I grew up in a rural area of Western New York State. I currently live and work in Brooklyn, New York. I began working with glass at a young age. A childhood friends’ father was a glass artist, and this is where I was first introduced to the material.
I was first drawn to the glass because of the danger element of working with a molten material. After running a production flame shop for a number of years, I made the decision to enroll in the glass program at Alfred University, where I shifted gears from flame working to hot glass.
Tension is a thread throughout my work. I’m fascinated with human behavior and the fragile microcosms that we fashion for ourselves, being afraid to face change. We often build up these expectations and are unwilling to step outside of that.
I dream of one day becoming a college professor.
