[CONTEST] Win A Drop Dead Skull Glass

 This contest has ended. Thanks to everyone who submitted a comment!

Here to ring in a spectacular 2013 is the Cute Cube Collective with their "Drop Dead Skull Glass".   This magnificent drinking vessel drops the conventional skull glass idea on it's head by inverting the skull to be INSIDE of the glass.   As you fill it with your drink the liquid takes on the shape of the skull thus making your ordinary cup of milk, or whatever, completely BAD ASS!  Now you can have one for your very self by entering our giveaway for one FREE glass.  Keep reading for more info...


The Idea*
"Lo and behold, DROP DEAD, the unique collector’s item. DROP DEAD is the offspring of our passion and resolve. It is the child of the Cute Cube Collective, a creative group of people in possession of arcane knowledge, gathered by countless generations of alchemists. One of a kind. The mysterious alembic. Vas Hermetis."


The Design*
"The item was designed and produced in Poland through an extremely complicated casting process. Each copy is cast manually, and subsequently manually polished by a master craftsman. Made out of high quality crystalline resins. Cold to the touch. Volume of 250 ml. Cylindrical in shape. 7 cm in diameter, 10 cm in height. The experience of the family casting workshop makes it certain, that this item may be called a true piece of applied art."



Usage*
"Fill it with whatever it is you crave. An elixir of eternal life, virgin’s milk, maybe? If not, then alcohol will do! When an ominous skull appears before you, stare deeply into its eye sockets. See your own self, in articulo mortis. Treat the item with reverence. If necessary, clean it with lukewarm water. Dry it with a soft rag. Do not use hard sponges or metallic dishrags under any circumstance. Also, don't leave it with the regular dishware; show it off in a display cabinet. Use it only when making the most extraordinary of toasts."



*Information taken from the Drop Dead website

PRIZE INFO: One (1) Drop Dead Skull Glass as described above.   

HOW TO ENTER: It's been said that drinking from someone's skull lets you partake in their knowledge and wisdom.  Leave a comment below stating whose knowledge you would drink from this glass if you could choose anyone from any point in time.  I would have to do a coin flip between Albert Einstein and Ghandi.

WHERE TO ENTER: All entries must be made on this blog post, on Skull-A-Day.com. You CANNOT enter this contest by commenting on Facebook, Twitter, or Google+.

I want to know HOW an artist starts with an idea and CREATES some piece of art. The thought processes of an artist, their special way of looking at things, this just amazes me.

Couchgirl13 said...

I would have to say Jesus, because although we supposedly know so much about him, we really know nothing. I would love to peer into his thoughts if for only the time it would take me to drink a shot from this beautiful work of art.

Guy said...

Being an artist myself, I was originally going to go with Da Vinci, since he is the epitome of the Renaissance man...

but I have to go with Nikola Tesla. He may not have been able to paint, but man, he had some inventions and ideas that I'm sure would blow my mind. I want to learn the things he knew, the things he took with him to his grave.

Susan Scofield said...

I think I would go with my 22-year old autistic nephew who cannot communicate verbally, but whom I know is highly intelligent... not for his knowledge perse, but to understand all of the things that have been trapped inside his mind, the things he has wanted to express but couldn't. Then once I understood his mind, I could relay these things to our family, so they could understand, too.

Person whose skull I'd like to use as a chalice is Salvador Dali. His imagination and ability to surprise the spectator is something really extraordinary for me. In one of George Orwell's essays can be read, that Dali's content of thoughts supposed to be much more disturbed than his art. Have you wrote 'drinking from someone's skull lets you partake in their knowledge and wisdom'? OK, bring it on.
