So Cool

April 01, 1998|CHARLES PERRY

Nothing's cooler than frosted glass. Here we have frosted shot glasses and a nested set of bowls of simply unspeakable suavity.

John Gilvey Frosted Shot Glasses, $22 each, and Frosted Bowls, $165 for set of four, from Freehand, Los Angeles.


And hey, how cool is a frosted glass mortar? Terminally cool. It actually works very well; the main problem will be coming up with an excuse to grind something at the dinner table to show it off.

Frosted Glass Mortar and Pestle, $29.99, from Bristol Kitchens, South Pasadena.

The Pick of the Party

Trudy Bronstein-Sugiura specializes in metal crafts with the sleek, soigne air of '30s high life. These silver- or gold-finish alphabetic hors d'oeuvre picks would be just the thing for a rumaki revival.

Hors d'Oeuvre Picks, $25 (set spelling HOT) and $34 (COLD), from Zero Minus Plus, Santa Monica.

Sharp Cutters

These copper cutters (which could pass for abstract metal sculptures in themselves) provide the essential Easter cookie shapes: egg, ducky, rabbit--and carrot.

Easter cookie cutters, set of four, $26.95, Sur La Table, Pasadena.
