We don't give props to the great glass artists in New York City anywhere near enough. Take for instance Brooklynite Elaine Li, whose portfolio site we stumbled across last night. She makes very cool glass cakes and eerie sculptures that look like underwater creatures. If you want to take a glassblowing class, we recommend One Sixty Glass, in Williamsburg. They seem friendly, and the location is great. The also do retail, for those of you to lazy to blow.
