is for those beer drinkers that like to drink straight from the bottle. Hopside Down now enables you to drink from a deluxe novelty shaped beer glass where the inside is shaped like a bottle. So you're kind of still drinking from a bottle but without the burps. Whatever you do make sure you pour your beer into a Hopside Down glass, pour it into a normal pint glass and realise how much you don't get in a bottle. Hopside Down is hand-blown, precisely crafted, and unexpectedly deluxe. Individually gift boxed. The Hopside Down Beer Glass measures 7 inches tall x 3 inches in diameter. (via Lazybone

" My installations are site-specific works dependent upon the space they occupy. Utilizing existing lines, beams, and angles, each piece I create is informed by the individual site and its unique linear movement. Thus, my installations are inherently architectural. I choose patterns and shapes according to detailed measurements of the installation site. Ideally these patterns are numerically symmetrical or somehow numerically balanced, producing a dialogue between line and space. I initially began working with tape because of the broad range of colors in which it is available. Additionally, I have always been drawn to its unique textural qualities. I began making videos to create a dialogue with the tape installations. I see the videos as a way to animate the tape installations, and further explore my architectural manipulation of space. When using tape, rather than leaving evenly-placed two-dimensional lines upon a wall, I expand upon the materialâ€™s sculptural potential and bring these installations into a third dimension. When using video, I angle projectors and use multiple intersecting projections to create animated, two-dimensional shapes. This creates an illusionary space, a perceptual play of pattern, color, light, and texture that is realized by the viewerâ€™s experience of, and interaction with the work. " - Rebecca Ward
