This stunning faceted Pink Glassware makes an encore appearance from This Post. Cheers!
Over the summer, I attended This Rad Party to celebrate the release of the Volkswagen Limited Edition #PinkBeetle. In keeping with Pink theme, they served refreshing pink drinks in pink glasses, delivered on a pink tray! Oh, the pinkness!
No matter how confident I ever am that I know most of the street level galleries in Chelsea, today I stopped it to the Heller Gallery on Tenth Avenue and asked how long they’d been open, since this was the first time I’d noticed them. The answer, which was quite unexpected, is that they’ve been at that location almost two years! How have I missed that? I have a few ideas.
What had initially sucked me in off the street was a collection of blown glass works in the window. When I stepped farther back into the gallery, however, my eyes were dazzled by this piece by artist Katherine Gray, entitled A Rainbow Like You (2015); an installation of blown glass, acrylic and lightning. I couldn’t help but think of the work of artist Dale Chihuly; specifically, in his Persian Ceiling Gallery, which is beyond breathtaking.
This work sells for $25,000.
Heller Gallery is Located at 303 10th Ave. (between 27th and 28th Streets) in the Chelsea Gallery District.
Holy cow! How rad are these Rainbow Hued Tumblers from the MOMA Design Store? Answer: So Rad. I know you’re probably thinking that it would be too risky to buy these, because drinking glasses — especially fancy drinking glasses — break so darn easily. But while these tumblers look like glass, they are made of durable acrylic! Their teardrop-shaped interior has a rainbow effect that radiates from the base throughout the tumbler.
Holiday gift shopping was so much easier (and way more fun) when I was much younger and most of my friends could be counted on to like the same things I liked. Now, I don’t know what anybody wants or needs. And while it usually covers all of your bases, nothing says “I Put No Thought Into This” quite like giving a gift card. You might as well just give the person cash. Sure there are exceptions, like if the card is from a very niche store they like, but regardless, you will get a much better reaction if you manage to find out the want one of those new LED shower heads and you give it to them when they least expect it.
But maybe, like me, you have a friend, sister, niece, wife, whatever who really digs the cartoon character Betty Boop, who will go completely nuts over any item with the likeness of the demure-yet-sexy Jazz Age Flapper.

In the above photo you can see artist Doktor A modeling his hand-crafted Safety Pin Sunglasses inspired by HR Giger’s late ’70s painting, Illuminatus II (seen on the left in the above photo). While these would certainly get you noticed on the beach, I bet they would have also been all the rage in the late ’70s London Punk Scene!

This pink elephant is especially rad because it’s wearing glasses, just like me!
