"English designer James Laurie has cut the top of a drinking glass into points so that the glass can be used to trap spiders in the corner of a room. Called 'Cornered,' the tumbler can still be used for drinking."

Laurie's instructions on how to employ the glass follow.


1. See a spider.

2. Wait for it to stop, perfectly poised in the corner of the room.

3. Go collect custom glass from cabinet.

4. Fold a sheet of paper crisply down the middle.

5. Walk over to corner.

6. Place glass slowly and precisely into the corner, while the spider patiently waits.

7. Then slide folded paper accurately down the glass, so that corner, glass, and seam are aligned, sealing the spider inside.



I like it.

A lot.
