Grain Teaser

At their 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 everyone's favorite fermented mash and printed it on this double Old Fashioned set 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 whiskey-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.

Cute Sayings. Poor Quality Glass

By 

from Philadelphia, PA

Verified Reviewer

Comments about UncommonGoods Life By Definition Whiskey Glasses - Set of 4:

I purchased these for my husband. The sayings are very quirky, which was what attracted me to them. However, the glass itself is very cheap quality - not worthy of the expensive whiskey he'd be drinking in them. I am returning them.

      My father-in-law is both a scotch aficionado and a lover of language. These glasses were made for him! The writing is easy to read, the glasses are a nice size for swilling bourbon and fit nicely in the hand. I could not be happier with this purchase!

      Love the product; needs better packaging

      By 

      from Minnesota

      Comments about UncommonGoods Life By Definition Whiskey Glasses - Set of 4:

      The first order arrived damaged; one of the glasses had shattered. Only cardboard dividers had been used to package them. Customer service was good. They made me answer a bunch of question regarding the arrival condition of the box and provide a picture of the shattered glass but sent a new order without issue. I really like the product and had no problems with it. Just maybe some bubble wrap or pask aging paper might have been a good idea
