For or against, the collection featuring 10 gift ideas for wine glasses below worth browsing through. The items are perfect when you want to impress with a breathtaking design.

No empty glasses!

Is the glass half empty or half full? A common expression used rhetorically to indicate that an individual is an optimist or a pessimist. In that case, I’m sure you’ll become an everlasting optimist as the device assures that when the amount decreases, a constant amount is poured from the tank into the glass. With a set of ten glasses you will transform the home bar into a laboratory of cocktails.

‘This is [not] a glass’ by Jeremy Brown

Do you remember our post about strange wine carafe? Now we want to present a strange wine glass that pairs amazingly with it. Designed by Jeremy BrownThis is [not] is a collection of work inspired by Magritte’s iconic ‘the treachery of images’ and its inscription, ‘Ceci n’est pas une pipe’ (this is not a pipe). The function of the objects is shifted away from the ‘functional’ and more towards the reflective. Unfortunately,  images are of prototypes only.  Final pieces are of slip cast ceramic and glass.
