Grain Alcohol

Is a martini glass made without glass still a martini glass? Designer David Rasmussen proposes this paradox with his intoxicating wooden drinkware. He crafts the bowl and the base from black walnut, with a handsome grain that echoes the ripples in your drink. Aside from being beautiful, wood is also a better insulator than glass, and helps to keep cocktails chilled longer. The wooden pieces are joined by either lightweight, powder-coated aluminum or plexiglass stems. Rasmussen carefully sands his wood to be velvety smooth, and then finishes it with an FDA-approved sealant, keeping the wood from interfering with the beverage's flavors. With the beauty of sculptural artworks, these glasses bring an extra shot of style whether they're in use or simply set out on your countertop. Comes in a set of two. Handmade in Colorado.

Raised in New England, David Rasmussen grew up surrounded by the Northeast's rich furniture making culture. He learned about composition and construction techniques from masters in the field, focusing primarily on mid-century modern, Ming Dynasty, and contemporary American studio furniture. His unique experience led him to serve as the lead carpenter for Vermont's Forever Young Treehouses, creating handicap-accessible treehouses in Los Angeles, Chicago, Cincinnati, and Pennsylvania. Eventually, David returned to furniture design, bringing his understanding of the material's versatility to his organic designs for the home.

The concept and design is terrific, but the white stems detract from the elegance of the beautiful wood. Black would be a much better color and would bring out the dark grains in the wood. I was looking for this to be my "go-to" gift for weddings, etc., but the white cheapens the beauty of the gift.

      I am a wood guy and bought these as a gift for another wood guy. We deal in fine American hardwoods every day and these are the perfect gift for the discerning hardwood lover. The craftsmanship of the Black Walnut is stunning.

            The glasses are so unique. We gave them to a friend at Christmas and I then gave a set to my husband. Both men are woodworkers so the glasses were perfect gifts. They also enjoy a martini once in a while!!

              This martini glass looks as elegant up close as it does in the catalog. The light weight makes it great to use. Flavor of drink is not altered

                      This was purchased as a gift. It came packaged very well and the wood is just gorgeous. I think the only thing that would make it better is if the stem were wood too. The white plastic takes a little away from the elegance of the rest of the glass.
                      It has yet to be given as a gift, but I'm looking forward to the recipient's reaction!
