Edible Glass / Prototyping 

> Rivo Gin

> Wooding Bar


So I decided to outsource the shape of my glass from nature as well and I went in my origin territory: the Vesuvio volcano. I was searching for a shape that could be transformed into a glass through a silicon mould, then I founded a beautiful pine cone that I transformed into a glass made of crystalized isomalt sugar. The match of visual, touch, smell and taste experience in one organic object: the pine cone glass seems to look like ice sculpt glass but when you touch it will be a little sticky, just like you are holding a real pine cone just felt down from the tree; the smell of the sugar flavoured with some forest aroma and the little sweetness of the sugar melting in the cocktail close the circle of the bartender experience in one object.
