Moon glass

4th April, 2012

The Moon Glass is a collection of ceramic cups, designed by Seoul based studio Tale. Created specifically for rice wine and sake, this unusual piece reflects phases of the moon. The bottom of the glass is curved in a certain way. This curve, paired with the colour of the beverage, creates the lunar effect. The glass shows a full moon when it’s full of liquid, then as your drink, it slowly unveils a half moon, then a crescent-shaped moon.

As Tale puts it, ‘Alcohol at moonlight tastes sweeter’
