metal, package, picnic

A little update on the wine glass project! My three stems are back from C-Cast foundry. They're reeeeeeeeally roughm it's going to take all the free time I have in the world to get them ready for the show on the 3rd. Still totally do-able.

I've been working on some packaging concepts as well. These too are really rough, but I like the way they're looking. I'm planning a variation of the one with the window in frosted translucent plastic - that way you can see a silhouette of the glass through the package. Very sexy, yes?

I've also decided to change up the color scheme on my set of picnic glasses. The design is already so feminine, the coral pink color was just a little too much. The new color concept is still coral inspired, just more approachable. I'll create a soft gradient from clear plastic at the top to a luscious light orange at the base (color swatch on the lower right). Beneath the orange is an opaque layer of dove white, so when you look into your glass, you see the color of the wine, instead of orange.
