Product line to start local design maker space and storefront.

We Have made our pledge goal!

This is for all my beer drinking friends who have enjoyed drinking beer from our great glasses.  I hope you enjoy as well.

Thanks so much to our pledgers!  There is still time if you have been thinking about getting a set of glasses or a decanter!

We are so happy that we get to fulfill our current pledges.

Cheers  We Made our goal.  Now get to work guys!
Cheers We Made our goal. Now get to work guys!

Where to begin?

What we want to do is no small endeavor.   We want to open a store front where we not only sell goods that we make but also invite customers into the process by letting them see how these items are produced and allowing them to personalize an item.

But NOT only that!

We also want to turn our creative space into a place where individuals can learn how to use the equipment and rent time to express some of their own designs.  Wouldn't it be great if everyone in Chicago had access to a laser cutter or rapid prototyper?  A CNC mill?

We think so.  If I could have learned how to use these programs and pieces of equipment it would have saved me a lot of tuition at a school!

And ALSO!!!!!

We want to support other local designers by featuring or carrying some of their goods in our store front.  Whether they make them in our shop or have them manufactured elsewhere.

So...Where to begin?!?!

We wanted to launch one product but it wasn't what we are about.  We can't open a store with one product.  We can't express how many ideas we have with one product.  And we can't demonstrate the depth of creativity and knowledge we have with just one product.  So.....

Here we go!

We wanted to take a few of our designs and put them on Kickstarter to show you what we've got and demonstrate what we are made of.

We hope you are ready.  It has been some time in the making and we are really excited about it and we hope you will be too.

This is what we've got so let your pledging begin!

Remember, every little bit counts so even if you just want a hello from us we placed in kisses to be blown through space and time as well as postcards to be mailed through boxes and postal carriers.

Cherry coasters milled so there is a recess where our revolving glassware can comfortably rest. 

Let's get personal.  We will work with your file or imagery to produce an even more wonderful experience each time you enjoy a beverage by laser etching it into your coasters.

Revolving Wine Decanter and Base

Revolutionary Decanter with Cherry Foot

This is what started it all.  A very challenging piece to produce.  Patrick had been working on this for many years when he was introduced to Brent as a possible glassblower to fulfill the difficult task of making it.  It is a difficult shape to produce by hand and then Patrick wanted the glassblowers to add a conical foot to it while still hot on the blowpipe. Encolmo glassblowing takes a lot of skill. With much trial and error the project evolved into this great product we are proud to offer you today.

This patented design is very beautiful and will add enjoyment to consuming any bottle of wine. 

It comes with a wooden base to ensure it rolls well and to accent its beauty.  We offer a version with a hand made wooden foot as well.

For those who want to get an exquisite experience we offer a large service and display tray that will be the centerpiece to any party.  It is made from one solid piece of Black Walnut.  For just a bit more you can get a tray with a live edge ( the bark still on it).

We would be remiss to not offer matching wine glasses to the collection.  Like the revolving decanter we have revolving wine glasses hand blown and polished.  

These are like the rocks glasses but blown thinner so they are lighter and don't have the heft of a rocks glass.

The entire experience will come to life for you  when you purchase a decanter, large service tray and revolving glasses to match.

Thank You

We hope you love our products as much as we love designing and making them. 

Our greatest appreciation to all of you who help us get Kickstarted.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

As with anything made of wood there possibly may be some warping and cutting boards need maintenance. This all depends on where you live and how much you use it. We will naturally take care of any complications that we can and we will explain how to maintain your cutting board for a number of years.
Hand blown glass offers many variations, that is the nature of things made by hand. We want to limit extreme variance in our production while keeping in mind each piece is unique in its subtle variations.
Glass is fragile and we have to package it well for shipping. Keep in mind our shipping costs are included with your purchase here on Kickstarter.

Dealing with many different files and photos, fonts and text will be a challenge. We will do our best to get you your final product as you imagined it. We will need to deal with variations in photos and the quality of photos to reach a high quality engraving.

We want to get it right and we aim to please so that you get a meaningful well made final product. Please have patience as customizing items is very time consuming.

Thank You!

FAQ

  • Kickstarter implemented a standard where no single item could be listed and then re-listed as a set. Hence we can only offer the glasses and decanters individually.

    Last updated:
  • If there is something that you want we will be sure to try and accommodate.
    Please send a message to me and I will tell you how to get what you want as far as sets or if you want international shipping on some of the items.

    It is our first KStarter and we are excited but also green to the experience. The rules for sets and combinations was a little unclear but we are excited for those who want our products and naturally we want you to get the whole experience.
