Is a martini glass made without glass still a martini glass? Designer David Rasmussen proposes this paradox with his intoxicating wooden drinkware. He crafts the bowl and the base from black walnut, with a handsome grain that echoes the ripples in your drink. Aside from being beautiful, wood is also a better insulator than glass, and helps to keep cocktails chilled longer. The wooden pieces are joined by a lightweight, powder-coated aluminum stem. Rasmussen carefully sands his wood to be velvety smooth, and then finishes it with an FDA-approved sealant, keeping the wood from interfering with the beverage’s flavors. With the beauty of sculptural artworks, these glasses bring an extra shot of style whether they’re in use or simply set out on your countertop.
