Pints

A series of photographs, that I plan to grow, of people with their pints. This starts with the “presumption” of the pint glass, a design classic that has become ubiquitous, moving on to people with the ceramic beakers I have made for them from hand dug clays – often using collected glaze materials.

Benefits discussed:

  • The beakers keep the beer cool for longer – ceramic being a better insulator than glass
  • The association with place – connections….
  • The feel of the beaker
  • The hand made aesthetic – particularly with “inviting” throwing rings in the lower half of the beaker

More will follow – both of the beakers and of a new series of pint tankards that some of the locals in The Plough have asked for……

Finally, I have included some photographs of historic tankards / beakers – likely to have an association with beer, from the Worcester Museums Service store.
