Grain Alcohol

Is a martini glass made without glass still a martini glass? Designer David Rasmussen proposes this paradox with his intoxicating wooden drinkware. He crafts the bowl and the base from black walnut, with a handsome grain that echoes the ripples in your drink. Aside from being beautiful, wood is also a better insulator than glass, and helps to keep cocktails chilled longer. The wooden pieces are joined by a lightweight, powder-coated aluminum stem. Rasmussen carefully sands his wood to be velvety smooth, and then finishes it with an FDA-approved sealant, keeping the wood from interfering with the beverage's flavors. With the beauty of sculptural artworks, these glasses bring an extra shot of style whether they're in use or simply set out on your countertop. Comes in a set of two. Handmade in Colorado.

DavidRasmussen

Concentrating mostly on furniture and architectural built-ins, David Rasmussen practices his craft in Carbondale, Colorado.

Raised and educated in New England, David was exposed to the Northeast’s rich culture of fine furniture making from a young age. Trained by furniture masters Wayne Marcoux and Dan Mosheim, David learned about composition and construction techniques. Mid-century modern, Ming Dynasty, and contemporary American studio furniture where the focus of David’s studies in furniture as he progressed in his career.

Always “driven by artistic design and aesthetic value,” David’s avant-garde approach to developing his style included joining Vermont-based Forever Young tree houses where he traveled as the lead carpenter on handicap-accessible projects in Los Angeles, Chicago, Cincinnati and Pennsylvania. David returned to his roots in furniture after a few years of building tree houses, bringing with him the organic understanding that is required for building in the trees.

Currently, David is working with his highly trained craftsmen to produce elegant furniture for clients all over the world. David’s recent work focuses on what he thinks is relevant and thought provoking within the realm of modern design.

David’s design is a response to modern aesthetics and resonates with iconic design. collection
