Reading Glasses (T thru Z)
Not those kind of reading glasses, Silly!, these are glasses you have to read...
Each one of these is a delicious micro puzzle for your brain as you decipher the meaning on each vessel by, (moving from left to right), pronouncing the word fragment and saying the name of the large letter. For example: we have pictured "teacher", "artist", and "oy vey"...how much fun is that?
Then there are more layers! on the opposite side of the glass I cycle the word "EARTH" so that is spells Heart, Hearth, Hear, The, Art...and then, hidden somewhere on the glass is another random phrase that you'll find (eventually).
These 23 ounce stoneware vessels are totally happy in the dishwasher or the microwave, (which is more than I can say for me), and they are good for hot or cold beverages.
The non-shiny texture on the outside is a process of layering oxides and engobes that leaves the surface feeling like leather in your hand- an especially neat texture when you are drinking something cold.
Colors are random but look really cool, don't they? We shall thoughtfully pick one out for you or if you have a specific need you may call us in the studio.
There are over 250 different wordplay options to choose from (so far). On this page you will find the wordplay for letters T thru Z up there; on that pesky drop down menu. You may find the rest of the wordplay for the alphabet on the other Reading Glasses pages in the gallery.
*STUFF YOU WANT TO KNOW*
All of this work is hand sculpted and includes genuine fingerprints... Everything is made of white stoneware and high-fired. All of the clay, glaze, engobes, oxides, and tortillas are completely food-safe. All sayings, quips, poetry and wordplay is original and the property of Michael Terra (me; that Mud Poet guy).
And lastly, shipping is free! Yippee, Yippee, Shipping is FREE!
ATTENTION HOLIDAY SHOPPERS!!!...Michael and I will be set up at the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar in Austin, TX again this year. So that means we are out of the studio starting December 12th. You can still order online anytime but if we're in Austin we only have what inventory we brought with us. As always we're happy to accommodate Y'All in the best ways that we can. If you want something very specific then it's best to get that order in before December 10th. Happy Merry!!
