The "Beverage beard" also known as the "Beer beard" is an original idea, generated by
myself during the "Glass heap challenge'' in Ebeltoft, Denmark. This challenge is an ongoing event that
has been taking place around Europe for many years. In the year 2017, it took place in the Glass Museum of Ebeltoft, complementing the "Young Glass 2017" festival that took place at the same time. I was one of the participants of the festival and was lucky to be selected for the "Glass heap challenge" as well, where I met other talented artists and craftsmen. Together we had a task to make unique beverage vessels for the local brewery. Mine happened to be the "Beer beard", that I find very suiting for the current times when face masks and lack of public events is the new normal. In a joke-like manner, this design is a solution, where we are tied to our beverage and can consume it without threatening the lives of others and ourselves.
