Spiders are disgusting and if you ever meet somebody that says they actually like spiders you should keep your distance because they probably worship the devil. That said, this is a glass designed by artist James Laurie for capturing creepy-crawlies in the corner.
Frustrated with spiders and other insects trapping themselves within a corner of a room making it difficult to catch. To counter this problem a glass was designed in collaboration with William Tapply, with a right-angled rim to correct this issue, cut and shaped accordingly from a tumbler glass.
In order to retain the spider, whilst moving the glass away from the wall a folded sheet of paper is slipped between the glass and corner.
Or, you know, you can smash the shit out of it with a rolled up magazine like a normal person.
