Les Mockes is the result of an imaginary vocabulary .
The word "Mocke" is a result of a mix of 2 langages : french and breton ( langage spoken in brittany, region of France).
This specific slang is regularly used in my family.
"Mocke" is a special word use to define "glass" or "cup". It appears that no one has never been able to give a proper definition to its use, color, shape or even its spelling... Therefore, each one of us had to create its own mental picture of a "Mocke".
I decided to shape my own understanding of this word, as a tribute to my family.
In my own understanding
A Mocke should be short, handy, pratical, soft to the lips.
A Mocke should be sympatic, joyful and lead people to enjoy the moment of the aperitif.
A Mocke should be in clear glass and highlight the beauty of the liquid inside.
It curves on the top part are thought to be the most confortable for the lips.
A Mocke can come with a conic accessory, in order to let people have some snacks during the drink.
The shape of the glass was thought to be pleasant to hold in a hand.
The top part remains curvy in order to be confortable when touching the lips.
Prototypes above were made in Barcelona by the Catalan Glassworker Ferran Collado.
Project open for edition, under legal contracts.
