I bought these for my son’s first birthday party. After that I am going to put succulents in some and maybe use them for my make up brushes.

we brought this back in a slightly larger size to really accompany 2 people comfortably. I always loved this silhouette and I’m excited about the refresh!

how it's made: brite drinkware

©All rights reserved by Miami Beach Gay Pride Sandra: In April 2012, while developing products for this Spring 2013, Andrea and I visited glass and dinnerware factories and naturally took a walk through their showrooms. After seeing hundreds of glass samples, we found a clear double old-fashioned—forgettable were it not for its stripes.

My thought process was to create a cocktail glass specifically for Pride parties—with the rainbow Pride flag as inspiration. Thankfully Andrea went along with the idea—we didn’t want to transfer the stripes literally, we simply used them as inspiration.

Andrea: The end goal was to create colorful drinkware that would be the star on the table with simple serving/dinnerware pieces—and that could be used for any occasion.

Color placement was hugely important as we discovered through various iterations—especially since the process of hand-painting the glasses naturally varied from the 2-dimensional drawings on paper. And, of course, no matchy-matchy so the brite martini and brite double old-fashioned are different to distinguish variations in the stripe patterns.
