wanders is a self-professed hedonist of great wines. working with an oenologist, he has designed ‘l’ivresse des bois’, a series of glasses consisting of a burgundy, bordeaux and champagne glasses. he has added some humor to the turned crystal stems by including his favorite seal – the famous clown with the nose that pops up in much of wanders’ collections. here it has become a motif for the stems and stopper in baccarat red or clear crystal. he has also designed two carafes, including a decanter.
