“The project is a combination between kitchen crafts and a basic industrial process of manufacture. These drinking glasses are made 100% of melted sugar which is roto-moulded into a hollow drinking vessel and drive inspiration from Murano glass art and cinema break away glass props. They can be batch produced by using a custom made silicon mould and their use is intended for one night events like private cocktail parties, gallery openings, etc.
The users swirl they glasses in a dramatic gesture reminiscent of enjoying fine liquor, and as they start to slowly dissolve, they progressively render their contents sweeter. Once the alcohol is consumed, the object devolves into a lollipop, turning the concoction into a more infantile experience.” (Fernando Laposse, 2012)
