Drinks By Definition

Acting as both a challenge to wordsmiths and an invitation to imbibe, this set of verbose vessels was inspired by the fluid power of words. Artist Eliza Todd considers herself a collector of words, constantly on the hunt for engaging terminology that has faded into near obscurity. To mirror their antique association, the terms and their definitions are printed in a stylized, typewriter-inspired effect, resulting in a handsome set of glassware that educates as it serves up your favorite craft brew. 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.

For the logophiles

Great product for my logophile boss. Given as a gift the set seemed to be received well and became the topic of conversation for the week. Particularly as we considered ourselves very literate and didn't know some of the words & meanings! How humbling!
