Etched and Engraved
Sometimes a girl just wants to draw some flowers...or clouds...or a dandelion...sometimes she wants to drop a box full of glasses off with her friend and collaborator Caitlin Blomstrom and ask them to draw on them. The gist is: these are fun, often not really planned, and hand-drawn/engraved! A mix of my designs and hers, these don't stay in the shop for long. Each one is different in size, shape, and design.
The surface of these cups are engraved (a process of removing material from the surface by grinding the glass with abrasives) using traditional glass working techniques. A laborious process that can take a lifetime to master, these cups are a fun way to practice technique while creating unique and functional objects to use in day to day life!
