Elevate Your Vocab-ernet

At her 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 sipping from the vine, which is printed on these stemless glasses 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 wine-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.

She loved the glasses but I have to say I was a bit disappointed in the quality of the type. It looked as though it might wash away with the first washing.
