If you're looking for beautiful yet functional glass decor with an edge, look no further than Off Centre's exquisite glass-blown pieces at BKLYN Designs 2014. Founded by artists Romina Gonzales and Edison Zapata, Off Centre challenges the established aesthetic norms of glassblowing and instead celebrates the so-called mistakes. The artists purposefully allow their glass art to wrinkle, fold and collapse to form one-of-a-kind decorative pieces.
“Our aim is to circumvent traditional processes, and approach “making” with naivety and reckless experimental abandon,” write the artists. Off Centre’s glass art is handmade at the Brooklyn Glass and Urban Glass studios in New York City and is made to order. Skilled at using glass as a flexible medium, the artists have provided their services for everything from lighting to interior design projects.
Off Centre sorts their collection under titles like “Wrinkled” and “Collapsing” to celebrate the aspects of glassblowing commonly thought of as flaws.
