Glass provides a resting place for wine, eveningwear for Cinderellas, and a more dramatic exit from 44th-floor windows for Bruce Willises. Seize translucent possibility with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of handblown glassware from Corradetti Glass Studio and Gallery.
Anthony Corradetti creates sinuous glass pieces adorned with vibrant metallic paint. The glass artist employs black, clear, and white glass as a base for his creative process while crafting handblown and kiln-fired art. The artist painstakingly applies layers of paint to create abstract, layered forms on each flame-kissed masterpiece. Each evanescent piece, twisted by Anthony's hands and tools, writhes with thoughtful complexity and spontaneous energy. Keep rogue paper from joining its arboreal ancestors with a paperweight ($36–$100) or bask in stunning color while sipping from decorative drinking glasses ($28–$50). Fused trays prop up party noshes or start a solo career as décor, and earrings ($40–$75) and pendant necklaces ($20–$75) dangle alluringly from bodies and act as potent compliment magnets. Anthony throws the gallery doors open according to this schedule to allow browsing, admiration, and manners practice for upwardly mobile bulls.
