These six hand-made glasses were fashioned out of bottles originally containing Cheerwine, a wild cherry flavored soda pop, purchased at Galco’s Old World Grocery in Highland Park. At home in Cypress Park, each bottle was cut to become a glass; the audio recordings made as each glass was formed accompany the set in the form of an audio DVD.
The carrying and display case was made out of oak recycled from pallets used to transport 150 boxes of the newly-published anthology Encyclopedia, edited by Tisa Bryant, Miranda Mellis and Kate Schatz and unloaded into a storage space in Eagle Rock.
This item was auctioned at the Les Figues Press 2010 auction!
Transport, display, decant, drink, listen, enjoy!
