Since I am a glassblower professionally, I wanted to share an art opening that Elodie Holmes & Enrico Emboli are having this Friday at our studio, Liquid Light Glass. Elodie & Enrico have done a collaboration of glass and bronze art. I think it is Elodie’s best show yet. Please come and enjoy this wonderful art. Here is a sneak preview from the new show. Don’t miss this one–it is fantastic.

Alien Martini Glasses

Alien Glasses and 'World's Largest Olives'

I can’t wait for the next martini party we go to! I can’t wait to have a martini after a long day in the garden this summer! We made 4 Alien martini glasses at our hot glass shop, Liquid Light Glass. I thought they’d be fun to drink out of!  This is an idea I’ve had for a long time and finally, Elodie Holmes, Cia Friedrich, and I made a few to try out. Cia and I made the alien heads, and then Elodie, Cia and I blow the goblet parts and put it all together. Here is a picture of two of the glasses with the ‘World’s Largest Green Olives’ I found at Trader Joe’s.

Here I am with my first martini out of the 'Alien Martini Glasses'

Now I’m not a gin martini drinker, but a vodka martini drinker myself. (I haven’t even started drinking it in this picture-I must be tired!) I got turned off to gin after, an ‘experience’ in college many moons ago.

Cats must come from an Alien Race!

I think cats, come from an alien race! I mean look at our cat, Chaka-she looks like an alien!

Now I know all you true martini drinkers cringe at us vodka martini drinkers but I contend (and I like my martini dirty-ooh, doubly bad!)) that gin is nothing more than vodka that has been infused! No you say? Not possible? Well, they both start out from ‘neutral spirits’. Vodka has all flavoring and coloring removed (unless you get one of the flavored ones) and gin has to be infused with juniper berries to be considered gin.

The main ingredient in gin is juniper berries (except for the alcohol)!

HMM! Did I say juniper berries? Now there’s an idea! Something to do after juniper allergy season here in Santa Fe with all those juniper berries! Here’s a fun article on making your own gin from jeffreymorgenthaler.com on ‘How to Make Your Own Gin Without a Still’. Ingenious—for all you adventurous types! Me? I’ll stick to my vodka martinis in my Alien martini glasses!
