The hand-painted Birch Pilsner is a 20 ounce beer glass which stands just over 8 inches tall. The pilsner glass is an elegant design - tall, slender, and tapered. The slender glass reveals the colour and carbonation of the beer, while the broad top (3.25 inches) will help maintain a frothy beer head.
Birch combines the translucent papery effects of birch-bark with its more noticeable white and black accents.
A white birch tree standing tall and picturesque is the epitome of the Maine woods. This design was originally created at the request of a friend for her upcoming wedding. Her fiancé, an artist, designed their wedding invitations - a pen and ink drawing of a birch tree with their initials carved into it next to a lake. They are both very outdoorsy!
As the wedding plans progressed she asked me to make toasting flutes to coordinate with their invitations and nature-theme of the wedding. While honored by their request, it was something I had not tried before. Through trial and error I created a multi-layered birch design with a gold heart “carved” into the glass with their initials.
They loved them! Their order increased to include flutes for the wedding party as well as ornaments for their parents to commemorate the event.
Glass Paradox’s wedding design was born!
I am amazed at the number of weddings across New England every year that include Birch in their special day.

This arrived just as it was picture. Everything I ordered came beautifully packaged in a box that was ready for gift giving. I also loved the recycled packaging that came in the shipping box. I will definitely be ordering again in the future!
