Does anyone know where I could purchase glassware made in Canada (wine glasses, cups, mugs, etc.)? I haven't been able to find anything besides Canadian companies that stock glasses made in other countries.
I’m in the process of finding a used RV. Either a small travel trailer I can tow with my SUV, or a class C that can tow my SUV is what I’m looking at. I’m fairly good at minimalism, but I have quite a few sentimental items that won’t to part with, but I am a bit reluctant to put them all in storage. An old English Saddle, my grandmother’s WAC jacket and two boxes of photos, sentimental items, etc. Quite a few glass things. With a good sized class C, I could likely fit it all in there. But being new to RVing, I think a small trailer is better. No way I’m fitting that stuff, plus all my actual necessities for me, 2 dogs and my work stuff in a small trailer.
Then the two things I’m more willing/able to give up but still sad about are baths and my glassware. Considering how much of a rough, rugged minimalist I am, it sounds silly. So feel free to laugh at me, because I’m certainly laughing at myself! I’ve figured out some creative ways to still get a soak in here and there, but my small stemware collection, my shot glasses and these pretty matching plates and bowls... ugh. There’s absolutely no way I won’t shatter them without some bulky, awful contraption and most of the stemware, I don’t use anyway. I just am going to feel so silly with all plastic wine glasses, bowls and plates 😂 I’ll literally poop on the side of the road and pick it up with doggy bags and pee in a jar, but I’m struggling to give up my stupid stemware.
I know once I start really getting into my downsizing, it won’t be as big of a deal, but I’m curious if any other full time RVers have figured out how to bring their glassware along safely? Or maybe some nice alternatives that don’t make me feel like a child? How about keeping sentimental items?
So I stated drinking coffee this year (thanks covid), and recently got my first espresso machine.
Ive begin the search fo the perfect glassware, and would like anyones opinions and thoughts to get me started because at the surface level everything the pops ups in basic searches im not a fan of. Right now I'm looking for the 'perfect' ~2.5oz espresso glasses, 6-8oz latte glasses and ~10-12oz americano glasses.
Some background on me, while I just started with coffee I had been deep in the spirits and home cocktail world for 10 years. I treat glassware as an art installation in my place and wait until I find the pieces that 'spark joy' as Marie Kondo would say. Money is no object, but more expensive is clearly not always more better.
My 'perfect' whiskey glasses are only ~25 each from norlan (https://norlanglass.com/products/norlan-whisky-glass)
My 'perfect' old fashioned glasses took me 4 years to find but are ~200 each when you can find them. (https://steuben.com/product/tortoise-double-old-fashioned)
My 'perfect' coups I got for 3 dollar as a garage sale.
and in like 10 years I still haven't found the right white wine glasses lol.
With that said, this is all personal taste, as any art is. So what's everyone favourite glassware for coffee. Hopefully this will point me to brands im not aware of, or manufactures, or styles ect.
Thanks in advance.
EDIT: lets say espresso 'vessels', instead of 'glassware', being actually made of glass is not mandatory.
There’s nothing I hate more than when someone offers up a bong with nasty resin from god knows when, and brown water. Can you not taste that? I love when I have people over and I bring out my pipe or bubbler and someone asks, “did you just buy that?” No, you aren’t that special. But if I swept the floors and washed the dishes because I’m expecting company, I’ll clean my communal glassware. I think it’s just a part of growing up. You do your chores to enjoy your home and keep things tidy. That should extend to your weed use also.
Question explains itself. Building out a home bar and want to get some good looking basics (shaker, jigger, strainer, stirrer etc. etc.) and potentially some nice glasses. I'm based in Brooklyn but happy to go wherever is good.
Hi, I have been having a ton of fun silver fuming my beginner pipes. Now, I want to silver fume all the glass in my life. Can I silver fume my old china glass? mason jars? random cups in the cupord? ceramic cups/plates? My chef knives? ect...
I have a fear of a molten glass exploding in my lap/work area, so figured I'd ask before I did something stupid.
My ventilation is good, I also have a harbor freight gas mask.
I'm about two days away from pulling the trigger on the VROD, however I'm a little unsure of what type of glassware to get with it. I haven't hit bongs for years but always used to enjoy something fairly sizeable, maybe something around 30cm? I was wondering if I need something with a vertical stem or if the flowerpot works just as well with the angled ones? I feel totally lost here so I'd welcome any advice and would love to hear what you guys think works best.
Edit: also, on the offchance if anyone has any discount codes I would be grateful.
Straight to the point: I need to know what I should look for in a beer glass if it will always be used frozen and will always be used to drink Heineken. Any feedback on what styles of glasses are good for freezing and/or Heineken is greatly appreciated!
My family drinks cans (12 oz) of Heineken out of glasses that have been chilled in the freezer. And that’s it, always a Heineken and always in a frozen glass.
What is the best kind of glass for this? We’ve done it every day for years and always just swap out whatever pint glass/water glass/stemless wine glass we have that’s clean.
I’ve done research online and it seems like the classic tall Heineken glasses are 16 oz, which seems kind of silly to only pour 3/4s full.
Thank you for your help!
Hi all. I’m trying to draw on champagne flutes. I bought permanent glass markers, but my designs completely came off when I washed the glasses.
Does anyone know of markers that worked for them? Or any other drawing tool? Or maybe a sealant I can put over the designs?
Thanks in advance!!
