I developed the Maps Glassware line in an effort to showcase maps in a different way. Graphic design seemed to be dominated by images or clever text printed on posters or teeshirts and I wanted to push the limits a bit more than a great looking design I could frame and hang on the wall.

Maps are a tactile object, intended to be held and used every day.  In the digital age we have moved away from this hands on interaction to GPS units and smart phones, the Maps Glassware line brings a static map back into your hands, to use every day.
