Elevate Your Vocab-ernet

At her parties, captivating conversation was always on the menu. Eliza Todd's definition-adorned glasses saw to that. The mixed media artist searched antique dictionaries for colorful vocabulary related to sipping from the vine, which is printed on these stemless glasses in a typewriter font that evokes a sense of old world charm. Offering a touch of tongue-in-cheek humor, they make great conversation pieces for your wine-loving guests. Glassware made in the USA; decorated in Lawrence, Kansas.

“Words help to create reality. They set the stage for our future.”

Chicago-based mixed media artist and graphic designer Eliza Todd has been producing art for as long as she can remember. A strong believer that every soul craves creativity, she is always looking for new ways to tell a story. When she was searching for a single word to help describe one of her art projects, her research led her to the word "efflorescence," which means "the process of unfolding, as if coming into flower." This simple discovery inspired her to unearth more antiquated and lesser-known words in order provide deeper meaning and symbolism to her work. She now considers herself a collector of words and uses their meanings to start and expand on new projects.

        Wording on the glasses was very thin making it difficult to read. so much so, that my friend actually missed the fact that they were printed until I pointed it out. A different typestyle would be better.

                    The wine glasses were a huge hit, and will be fun to bring out when entertaining a small group of friends. Great conversation starters and "learning tools".

                      The glasses arrived in excellent condition. I had ordered two sets of four. My son's friend was thrilled with them and we used then throughout his stay with us. We had no difficulties with putting them in the top rack of our dishwasher.
