seven deadly sips




Hamilton Design has created a conceptual set of seven red wine glasses based on the Seven Cardinal Sins. All nestled in plush burgundy velvet and polished wood, they look like an antique glass medical device.


Each handmade glass, representing a different sin, is almost painfully clever in concept - the Envy glass is full of holes, rendering what is most desired (the wine) all but unattainable, and the Lust glass is suspended from above, the only way to release the liquid inside being to manipulate a frosted glass globe with the tongue.

I don't even want to guess the price, but these absolutely exquisite sets are available for purchase at their website.

Hi Mandi,

I discovered your stuff on Flickr & have been enjoying catching up on both your blogs...

I was wondering if you know the glasswork of Andy Paiko... if not I think you'd really enjoy it. The spine jars especially, but there are so many wonders on his site.
