Bottoms Up

They say you can't find happiness at the bottom of a glass, but that certainly isn't true for this glorious set of tumblers. Handblown by Nadine Saylor with the care and craftsmanship of a glass art sculpture, the tumblers each have an angular island that rests below the surface of their contents that is slowly exposed with each sip. Each glass in the set of four has its own vibrant color, adding an intoxicating visual to the design, as well as helping to distinguish between guests' drinks. And, most strikingly, the physical properties of glass allow light to refract around its edges, focusing into a point of almost mystical light, right at the island's exposed peak. Handmade in Illinois.

Nadine Saylor received her MFA from Alfred University in Sculpture. Nadine teaches at Bowling Green State University, Alfred University and Harrisburg Area Community College. She has won many awards for her work, including "Glass Artist of the Year" by the Art and Design Consultants in Cincinnati.

In her artwork, she investigates the rise and fall of our country's economy, while preserving its history in the permanent material of glass.
