I have to figure out how to mass produce these, or at least make small batches easier to make.

Thanks for looking
JP



Easy...team up with Kirby. He seems to be on some sort of resin molding bender. If I remember Helz has been doing some of that recently also.

You should figure out how to work some sharks teeth into it. It would force you to keep your wits about you while drinking. "No really hun, I didn't get in a fight. My stupid martini glass bit me."

They look great JP & Im sure they would be popular among the tiki-set. My main observation/worry/query would be, how well do they perform? ie: are they comfortable to hold/drink from? Function is as important as form.

Definately in idea worth devoloping though; Id buy a set!

Awesome and original idea/design JP and very marketable. One of those ideas that is so good, you wonder why no-one has done it before.
Like you said the next step will be figuring out the best way to make more than one. I think this concept would look great in ceramic, ie a fully-fledged mug/mini bowl. You could then fuse all the components together, and it would also be easier to clean and more durable. The main glass/bowl part could have some sort of surface decoration in keeping with the sea/fishing theme.

Johnny,

Give Fink an ding. Maybe the two of you can find a way to cast it in pieces and then assemble them? I think carving on seriously sick set of hooks is the way to go and then reproduce them. I also like the idea of making the cup and having surface designs on it - like fish

Here is the glass all finished up. I will be putting this in the Marketplace section to take orders to carve a few wooden hook glasses, everyone and original. Possible resin cast hook bottom glasses coming in the future with substantial help from a fellow TCer.

This was a fun little project. This weekends task.... come up with a drink recipe to go with it.











How do you think this would work in ceramic? I'd need some help with that.


Thanks for the positive comments.

JP

Yo JP!

Very original and inspiring, again! GMAN says a shark bite in there for a drink - that sounded real good to me too. If you make more of these gems I'll buy some!
