Non-Functional

Glass artists like to display their skills through artistic works that aren’t meant to be for smoking. These non-functional pieces are intended to compliment your functioning pieces. They can also be worn in a style that mimics jewelry to truly display the artists capabilities. Usually in the form of a pendant to be connected to a chain, these art works can be displayed in settings that would deem a functioning piece inappropriate. Nonfunctioning pieces can also be in the form of a Q-tip holder, earring, or drinking cups. In more recent times many people have come to appreciate the devotion artists have given to nonfunctional pieces.
