7 Deadly Glasses

[via NOTCOT]

seven deadly glasses

7 Deadly Glasses are the work of London-based designer Kacper Hamilton.

“Each glass encapsulates a sin, which is revealed through the ritual of drinking,” explains Hamilton. “The 7 Deadly Glasses are about celebrating passion and encouraging the user to be sinful in a theatrical fashion. The display case is a sarcophagus for the wine glasses, made using mahogany wood, brass fittings and a velvet fabric lining.”

These witty and gorgeously gothtastic chalices were recently exhibited at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design Degree Show. Central Saint Martins, aside from being a fantastic art and design school, is the alma mater of notable alumni such as Pulp's Jarvis Cocker, Gilbert and George and vacuum cleaner tycoon James Dyson, but perhaps most relevant in this case: the English fashion world's enfant terrible and dark lord Alexander McQueen and The Horrors' gangly, preternatural vocalist Faris Badwan.

Must. Have.
