The glass armonica is a musical instrument invented by
Franklin, in which the player runs their moistened fingers along
edges of multiple spinning glass domes in order to achieve a
sound. Each piece on the armonica is a different size, and
achieve a specific
note when rubbed.
In my ideal kitchen, all the drinking glasses and glass bowls
increase in size gradually from the smallest cup to the largest
bowl. Each one would be tuned to a different note of the scale.
they were all clean, I could store them all on a rotating spindle
order of pitch, and play the "music of the angels", as Franklin
whim every time I go to get a drink.
