The hand-painted Granite rocks glass is a is a short (3.5 inches tall) stemless glass used for serving an alcoholic beverage, such as whisky, with ice cubes "on the rocks". It is also sometimes referred to as an "old fashioned" glass.
The rocks glass has a wide brim (2.75 inches wide) and a thick base so that the non-liquid ingredients of a cocktail can be mashed using a small muddler before the main liquid ingredients are added.
Granite is the most masculine of my designs, in my opinion. It’s also the design with the most loyal fans I have ever met. There’s a couple from New York who add to their Granite collection every summer. They’ve sent me pictures of their two corner curio cabinets filled with Granite! Now they request an item and I spend most of the year searching out the pieces to paint - salad bowls, dinner plates, and serving pieces round out their one-of-a-kind collection.
Using the same design concept as Cathedral, Granite is a combination of black, pewter, opaque, white and clear triangular shaped spaces. The clear spaces allow you to see what’s in your glass and the neutral coloring goes with so many different color schemes and decorating ideas.
