What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

WHY INVEST IN OUR NEW VAN GOGH COLLECTION?

  • As official licensees of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, we have designed a collection of bottles and drinkware using Van Gogh's art in the most eye-catching way you've ever seen (read below to learn about how our bottles and glasses showcase ART THROUGH WATER!).
  • Our Van Gogh collection enables you to bring his art into your home in a way that is both affordable and unique. 
  • Our bottles and drinkware are the most refined "functional art" you'll ever own-- truly art you can use. Our bottles make gorgeous dining table centerpieces, beverage serving vessels, kitchen essentials, art pieces in a curio cabinet or on a fireplace mantel, and one-of-a-kind gifts. And our corresponding drinkware is a beautiful complement to our incredible bottles.
  • Each bottle is hand-decorated with 22-karat liquid gold frame and lettering.
  • Each Van Gogh bottle will arrive in its own beautifully decorated box produced in Southern California along with a bookmark insert detailing the specific art piece on the bottle (please see our prototype gallery for images of these incredible boxes and inserts). 
  • You will be supporting a US-based company (all of our bottles are decorated in Southern California) whose mission is to enhance people's lives with the beauty of art and the eco-friendly functionality of glass.
  • We've been designing and producing incredible bottles and drinkware using iconic art for more than two years (read on below to learn all about what we create)-- we know what we're doing!

GALLERY DRINKWARE HAS A UNIQUE MISSION

Now that you've seen what we're in the process of creating with our new Van Gogh collection, let's talk about what we've done so far-- what we create, who we are, and what we believe in. As designers of glass bottles and drinkware which feature iconic art, our mission is to beautify the home setting while helping to protect the natural environment around us by encouraging people to choose glass over plastic whenever possible. We are official licensees of the incredible art of Wyland, Guy Harvey, Drew Brophy, and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and we showcase this art on glass in an extraordinary way.

VIEW ART THROUGH WATER

Since the art itself is on a decal that is baked onto the back of each bottle, you actually view the art through the liquid you put in the bottle. Fill the bottle with a clear or light-colored beverage of your choice and watch the art come alive-- the liquid gives the art a three-dimensional effect in a way you've never seen before

 

Because the art on each of our bottles is baked onto the BACK of the bottle, you view the art THROUGH the water in the bottle.

OVER THE PAST TWO-AND-A-HALF YEARS, WE'VE BEEN RAPIDLY EXPANDING

We are Kenny and Leah Laskan, a husband-and-wife team who first launched our company in early 2015 as Water Gallery when our only products were our signature bottles. We dreamed of starting this business long before 2015 and it took us more than two years prior to our launch to design and fine-tune our original signature bottles and manufacturing process (each bottle is decorated with a highly complex, multi-layered decal baked onto each bottle). As we've expanded over the past two-and-a-half years, we've added numerous drinkware items (including pint glasses, double old fashioned glasses, shot glasses, glass beer mugs, and glass coffee mugs) to our line-up. We quickly realized that Gallery Drinkware was a name that better fit the way our company was growing. Our drinkware collection continues to expand as we work consistently to design exciting new pieces.

Risks and challenges

We are fortunate to say that we have worked through all of our production kinks during the process of manufacturing our previous glass bottle and drinkware collections. For example, in the past, we had an issue with the liquid gold frame and lettering not baking on the bottles properly. Because gold is a metal and not an ink, even in its liquid form it doesn't always adhere to glass in the way it's intended. Through trial and error, including varying baking times and temperatures, repositioning, fewer bottles on the baking rack, and touching each piece individually, we were able to solve this issue. Because we've worked through various production delays over the past two-plus years of being in business, we do not foresee any production issues.

The area that may present a possible delay is as follows: because we license the Van Gogh art from the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, all of our prototypes must meet approval guidelines through the museum before our Van Gogh collection can begin production. After submitting our first round of prototypes, the museum indicated that there was a saturation difference in the art decal we had created versus the original Van Gogh art. In other words, the colors on the decal weren't precisely accurate to the museum's specifications. For our second round of prototypes, we have adjusted the saturation levels accordingly and the prototypes will be submitted for approval to the museum in September of 2017. Our biggest challenge lies in the fact that when the decal is viewed THROUGH both the glass and the liquid contents of the bottle, the saturation level can be slightly altered. So we need to keep that in mind when trying to address both the museum's specifications as well as our own design vision for the bottles and drinkware. We are confident that for these next prototypes, we have addressed both of these aspects, but there is a chance a third prototype will be required. In that case, production could be pushed back. In the event of a delay, we will notify Kickstarter supporters immediately. Worst case scenario, Van Gogh bottles and drinkware would ship in January of 2017.
