Beer Mugs


This is a set of beer mugs inspired by the art deco movement of the 1920’s. The rings around the bottom section of the mug are a visual tip of the hat to the art deco era, but also serve a functional purpose for holding onto.

The use of Kwila was chosen for the body of the mug as its a dense hard wood that machines well for turning and has a solid feel. Aluminium was sand casted for the rings and then turned down to provide a visually striking contrast to the Kwila with a material that doesn’t require finishing.
