The hand-painted Fan 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.
The artist uses wispy, bold strokes of color against a hand-frosted glass. Fan is an elegant design for all seasons!
I’ve often been told I should have named this design “feather”. When I created this design, I was thinking of the fans made of feathers - colorful and playful. Not the electric fans we see all over in the summer time moving the hot humid air or the throngs of people surrounding a superstar, it was much simpler than all that. The fans of days gone by, when ladies wore gowns to dinner and everyday activities were of a grander scale. The elegance in daily use.
By the way, this is my mother’s favorite design. Whenever she needs a gift for a special occasion, she calls me to paint “something in Fan” for her.
