These hand blown glass ornaments are made by Brooklyn-based artist Gayle Forman.
Employing a variety of techniques, Forman Function strives to provide unique, handcrafted objects that can exist both as user friendly items and sculpture. The designs are inspired by the search for something Forman refers to as the “wiggle” - instances in which materials, objects, or people no longer have defined limitations and can fluctuate between hard and soft, rigid or flexible. The idea that perhaps all materials could – and should – be questioned in this manner, pressed to reveal their limitations and breaking points, opens up a world of fascinating possibilities.
Every handmade piece at Alma’s is a story of its craft.
