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.

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.

          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.

                    I bought these to give 1 each to a group of close friends. I have not tested washing in the dishwasher, but have hand washed several times and it seems to be holding up.
