public_access_description
Leading British artist Richard Wentworth has designed this glass in collaboration with Kit Grover for the Tate, to coincide with his exhibition at Tate Liverpool. Based on the idea of a traditional measuring glass, Wentworth's 'Meniscus glass' measures in sips, gulps and mouthfuls rather than numerical volumes. Witty and thoughtful, it reflects his interest in the physical relationship between humans and domestic objects. It represents and interesting collaboration between a major figure in British art and museum retail.
