Sakurasaku

Even condensation can be aesthetically pleasing…

“It basically turns the notion of annoying condensation rings on ist head, and make them something to look forward to. Every time you lift your glass a beautiful Cherry Blossom, the Sakura Flower appears and subtely changes its shape…This is an amazing quality glass, the base feels thick and heavy, yet the walls are nice and thin giving off a crisp chime when toasted. The cherry blossom is etched perfectly into the base, so it creates a beautiful and perfect shape each time the glass is lifted…”

Set of two glasses per box
each: 4.3″ (11 cm) x 2.9″ (7,2 cm).

Esther Derkx Wine Glass

A non-traditional take on the usual wine glass shape…

“Varying slightly from the Esther Derkx norm, these wine glasses are new, not refurbished, but Derkx has still added her trademark humor in the form of designs screenprinted onto the glass. Each design varies slightly and we cannot guarantee which design you will receive.”

9.5″h x 3.5″w at base.

(Sweater) Espresso Cups

These are definitely growing on me.

“New in Alyssa Ettinger’s knitware line are these petite cups imprinted by the cuffs of knit sweaters, one stockinette and one cable stitch. Super for a hit of espresso, a tealight or maybe a place for your jewelry or loose change. Available in unglazed white, glazed celery or glazed blue (matte glaze on the inside of all cups).”

Set of two.

Tag Cup

This cup bears resemblance to a cupcake, but I say that meaning it in a good way (for who doesn’t love cupcakes?). This cup is much more handy to have (than a cupcake) when handling hot or cold beverages. Would be a stand-out gift for someone that needs a new beverage-holder.

“Porcelain cup encased in easy to grip silicone sleeve. The silicone insulates the cup, keeping hot hot and cold cold, protects your hands from heat, and looks great too.”

Dimensions: 4.3″Ø x 3.5″H

Available in Mint, Plum or Carrot

Droplet Glass

If you or someone you’re fond of is a connoisseur of wine (or sake), this particular glass would be nice and special. It arrives in its own small wooden crate (which could be displayed on its own) that rounds out the whole ‘special’ package.

“The 8 oz glass is exceptionally thin and has a beautiful inverted droplet shape which, as you gently swirl the glass, helps to aerate the liquid and release the bouquet.”

Fern & Frond Glasses

These are quite lovely…

“Three different delicate flora and fauna patterns are carved into glass then hand-painted using colorful translucent paints. The glass is then reheated to set the color. Each piece will vary slightly, due to the nature of the handmade creations. Hand washing is recommended. Set of 6, 2 of each pattern.”

Left or Right?

In light of the upcoming elections, I couldn’t help posting these cute mugs I stumbled upon as I was browsing for a house-warming gift. Though I’m not going to purchase these, as I’m unwilling to encourage any debates at what will otherwise be a fun party. If I owned them, however, I would certainly look forward to Mrs. Roosevelt looking at me from my cupboard everyday…

Help Mug

Sometimes it’s best to start with a very limited mission statement.

“Studio Verissimo consists of Portugese designers Claudio Cardoso and Telma Verissimo. The core activity of this studio is lighting, furniture and space designs, etc…. Help is a ceremic mug whose objective is to help people make rice.”

By the Lake Cups Bird

The silhouetted trees that encircle each By the Lake porcelain cup are mirrored in the platinum-plated surface of the matching saucer. What’s more, the miniature images change with the light and point of view: a tiny visual tempest in an exquisite teacup.

Handmade handleless mugs that have nicely done text transfers of different coffees or teas. What’s not to like (or love, as the case may be)? Each mug is slightly different.
