The project explores the possible marriage 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. The glasses are completely edible and whatever is not consumed can then be re melted and reformed or simply dissolved in water leaving no waste behind.
