Forge Garrabrant is an artist and craftsman who lives and works in Columbus, Ohio. He was born in Columbus and grew up on a farm in Galena, Ohio. He started his career working with glass at the Pilchuck Glass School in Washington State and continued his education at Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio, where he received his associate's degree. He eventually transferred to the Columbus College of Art and Design, where he earned his bachelor's degree in Fine Arts in 2019.
Forge primarily works with glass but also works with metal, wood, rope, and found objects. His work tends to be most inspired by memories the brain holds onto, whether they be significant or insignificant, the senses attached to them, and how that information is stored and structured. His sculptures are often representing these different aspects of memory and the microscopic structures they form.
