Breakable - Heller Gallery
Nylon wild
The American Design Club (AmDC) really brought it this year with the help of the Heller Gallery, an all-glass gallery, and Susan Clark, one of AmDC's members who specializes in glass work.The resulting show is one of the richest of this year's ICFF offsite. The high level of material accomplishment evident in each project makes for work that doesn't rely on a concept explanation to be enjoyed.

The "Breakable" show has introduced a new audience to our gallery and most visitors have been as positive as Core 77's Lisa Smith.
For 36 years we have been specializing in work employing glass in innovative ways. Over time we have seen increasing numbers of fine artists as well as master craftsmen discover the potential of the medium. It is gratifying to see this wonderful material inspiring a new generation of designers as well.
Thank you AmDC and kudos Susan Clark.
