unique carafes by etienne meneau

etienne meneau passed along some images of his unique decanter sculptures. the branch like design of these decanters is reminiscent of the bordeaux vines where meneau is from. each holds a normal sized bottle of wine in its hand-made 65 cm tall, borosilicat glass form. make sure to look at meneau’s blog which features a video of the carafe being filled.

  • Really gorgeous!
    Just one question…how can you wash it properly?
