Prescription Glasses

Drink to gin's fascinating medicinal history in style with these clever Copa de Balon glasses, which are designed with a large bowl to trap the spirit's botanical aromas and slow the melting of ice. Each is printed in platinum metallic ink with a classic saying that speaks to the value of a stiff drink: "GOOD FOR WHAT AILS YOU" comes from sailors who added gin to lime juice to combat scurvy, and "FOR YOUR HEALTH" from 19th century British soldiers, who put gin in tonic water to cover up the bitter taste of quinine, used to prevent malaria. Fortunately, tonic is tastier than it used to be, and these glasses provide ample room for gin, ice, and mixersó so go ahead and enjoy a healthy dose of your favorite gin cocktail. Designed by Patricia Carlin. Glassware made in the US. Decorated in Lawrence, Kansas.

Phrases on each glass read:
For Your Health
Good For What Ails You
A Little Pick-Me-Up
Just What The Doctor Ordered

“I like to keep things pretty simple. I focus on warmth, humor, and emotion.”

Patricia Carlin believes that a small sketch has the power to tell a story without language. She started out as an art director in Philadelphia, selling everything from potato chips to financial products. In 2001, a friend wanted help launching a glassware business, so Patricia designed and wrote copy for several products for the new venture. Patricia has explored many techniques in her illustration, but simple line drawing appeals to her most. "For me, paring things down to their simplest essence is always the best way to understand them," she says.

We chatted with Patricia about how she brings her charming illustrations to life (and got a look at her adorable studio cat). Read the Q&A on our blog.
