W&P Designs

Josh Williams and Eric Prum of Brooklyn-based W&P Design draw inspiration from their Virginia roots to craft vintage American kitchenware and drinking tools.

One such invention, the Mason Shaker, was born out of a Southern summer. Too many mint juleps shaken in an altered Ball Mason jar led to a workshop reimagination. The final four-piece cocktail shaker melds modern utility with classic sensibility, keeping with W&P’s simple yet stylish bar accents.
