As a maximalist, Glori finds "excess" to be particularly inspiring— excess of sounds, colors, even excess of feelings. She finds herself being constantly stimulated with all sorts of inklings and ideas during her creative process. Concepts & possibilities consume her. Through her work, Glori likes to spark wonder & curiosity through the materials she curates and the combination of those choices. This time, Glori was inspired by lichens— tough, kaleidoscopic organisms that exist in nature which she finds to be fascinating. Through DISCO MOSS, Glori reimagined lichen through a futuristic lens combined with elements derived from the effervescent energy of NYC’s nightlife.
gloflo is the moniker of Glorimer Ovalle— a creative born in the Dominican Republic and currently based in Brooklyn, NY. Since 2017, Glori has fused her experience as an interior designer, strong spatial sensibility and fascination with the natural world into a singularly experiential approach to her floral arrangements and set design. The playful and charismatic qualities of her work is exemplified by past collaborations with some of New York’s leaders in the floral, film, beauty and music industries like Putnam Flowers, Original Mineral, Atlantic Records & more. When Glori is not working with flowers, she can be found admiring butterflies and singing karaoke.
