Web Description: 
The drinking glasses on view in this case are functional, but they are not examples of commercial design. They are crafted objects, designs made by hand in limited numbers. The intent of these objects is not to reflect the best design of, or use for, a drinking glass, but to offer a personal alternative that addresses the more emotional values and sensibilities of the artist and the user.
