Juniper Bubble Beaker

The Goldsmiths' Centre

£1,440.00 Sale price

Silver beaker with bubbles, lines and juniper berries
by Christine Johnson


Juniper Bubble Beaker is perfect for enjoying a gin and tonic. Inspired by gin and her love of geometric lines and repetition, three columns of silver beads are positioned in thirds around the beaker; the smaller beads represent rising bubbles and the largest bead at the top of each column symbolise a Juniper berry. The bubbles are a reference to the familiar method of serving, with tonic, and the berries reference the source of the flavour. There is a special space reserved on the side of the beaker where you could place your mark of ownership; an emblem, coat of arms or initials.
