Drinking can be a lot of fun, if you are with the right people. Whether you can hold your own when it comes to alcohol consumption or not, moderation is key, of course. (I have to say that, of course.) I do love my drink, but unfortunately, recent health issues have forced me to go the teetotaller way. I’m not desperate, but I wouldn’t mind ice cold beer, especially if it’s served in this mug.
Or this mug.
These are the creations of NexusGlass, an Etsy shop specializing in etched glassware – and not just any etched glassware, mind you! From what you can see in the shop, the guys have excellent taste. If those two beer mugs are not enough to convince you, then you might want to take a look at these shot glasses. (Tequila lovers, rejoice!)
I would drink everything out of theses shot glasses – water, milk, or even coffee! I am sure the Doctor would approve! And for Star Wars fans…
If you know a little about etching glass, you would be happy to know how NexusGlass does their work:
All of our etching is done with a sandblasting and stenciling process which leaves a permanent, textured image on the glass, exposing a satin like finish. The process we use to sandblast is a low pressure, low impact system that produces life like shading effects on our more detailed artwork and a dishwasher safe design on all of our glassware.Some of our higher end products are expressed through a carving process in thick glass. This is a higher impact system that produces a carved out, 3 dimensional design. All of our glass etchings here are done with a stenciling process, not laser engraving. We believe in a more hands on approach and natural look. All the designs we put on glass are permanent. There is very little care involved other than the normal use of your glassware.
So you don’t really have to worry about special cleaning processes. All you need to make sure of is that you have fun and NOT break these glasses.
Oh, there’s more…
