The Cathedral shot glass stands 3.5 inches tall and holds 2 ounces. Designed as a small glass intended to hold or measure spirits or liquor, which is either drunk straight from the glass ("a shot") or poured into a cocktail.
Shot glasses are a common sight in the United States and often collected. However, before Prohibition, in the early to mid 1900s, thin-sided whiskey glasses were common. After Prohibition, these were replaced by shot glasses with a thick base and thick sides.
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.
