A modern fine silver and 18 K gold Square to Circle beaker
London 2009 by Theresa Nguyen

Of square form, the the sides curved so that the circle and the square intertwine each other. The body covered with fine martelé and tapering into a round rim. The round base slightly arched. The body embellished by small square shaped details in 18 K gold.
A fine and impressing beaker in fine execution. The design of this beaker takes up the design of the so-called tumblers and interprets it anew into a modern language. A pair of this beaker in smaller dimensions can be found here and here.
