Five Fingers Glass

Kaye Winwood & Nuala Clooney


This glass is made of borosilicate glass.

Part of Nuala Clooney and Kaye Winwood’s Expanded Intimacy, developed to explore touch, taste and smell, and the relationship between hand, mouth, tongue and nose. Each glass is designed to engage with the most sensitive areas of the body: the hands and fingers. The glass is to be worn like a glove, becoming an extension of the users’ hand and their touch. ​As the user brings the glass attached to the hand up to their mouth, they directly look into and onto their own hand.
