As an openly enthusiastic moon worshipper, I tend to be pretty easily drawn to anything having to do with this mystical astronomical object. Hence it is no surprise that these ingenious ceramic glasses caught my eye a few weeks ago. Created by the Korean firm Tale, the Moon Glass is a beautifully designed vessel that displays a different phase of the moon depending on how much rice wine (or beverage of choice) has been poured into it. Available in black or white glaze, the interior of the glass is constructed with a custom curve which affects the perceived shape of the liquid inside as the level of the beverage changes. Lunatics!

The cherry on top? This beautiful description on Tale’s website:

Alcohol at the moonlight may be tasted sweeter.
Between the moon and alcohol, there is something delicate attraction.
Like the moon is filled up and emptied.
A drink either. And both things can be drink by people.
