In bars, restaurants and at home, the glass jelly jar conveys everything from cocktails and beer to dips and desserts. But in the hands of artists and life-hackers, this honest, humble vessel becomes a statement about permanence and impermanence. We already love the Mason Shaker, a Brooklyn-designed shaker-strainer for the hipster set ($29, MasonShaker.com). But there’s a brave new—and breakable—world of mason jar accessories to take you from morning coffee to smoothie lunch and straight on to cocktail hour. Just hold on tight!
