All that Glitters
A work of art isn't merely beautiful, it helps you to see the world around you in a new way. That's what glass artist Nanda Soderberg does with these resourceful glasses. He takes something that was once disposable - a beer bottle - and cleans and polishes it to reveal its sparkling amber color. He then cuts it into a petite, 6 ounce drinking glass, and fire-polishes the lip to perfect smoothness. Instead of the label it once carried, it is given a shimmering, abstract splash of 23K gold leaf across the front portion of the vessel. The gold leaf is fused with the glass, so that it will not scratch or wear off. Coming in a set of two, the artist's vision makes these glasses not just a glass, but an experience that enhances whatever you sip from them. Made in Manchester, New Hampshire.
