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.
- 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.
