The hand-painted Cathedral 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.
The larger triangular shapes give this design a colorful modern feel that isn’t too much of either.
Cathedral was created when people started looking for matini glasses and margarita glasses in my original colorful designs. I simply couldn't paint martinis and margaritas in the designs I had created, the glass shape was wrong! I couldn't envision all those little square-ish shapes of color on a triangular shaped glass... so I designed Cathedral.
I hadn't realized at the time that it would become a top-5 design of it's own and I would soon be painting it on every shape of glass in my studio. The larger triangular shapes give this design a coloful modern feel that isn't too much of either. The black stem grounds everything making the colors all that more vibrant.
