Expanded Intimacy is a series of glassware created to explore touch, taste and smell, and the relationship between hand, mouth, tongue and nose. Developed in collaboration with artist Nuala ClooneyExpanded Intimacy explores the interplay between object and body particularly in relation to the sensualisation of food and drink experiences.

These unique glasses can be used in dining experiences and performance which transgress conventional modes of eating; using food, performance, texture, weight to explore eating as a sensual act.

The glasses have already been used in some incredible events internationally:
