Description:
Star and moon covered deep blue sorcerer's cap wine bottle stopper. Distinctive art handmade in Vermont from stoneware clay, glazed, and then epoxied to medical-grade stainless steel.

"Sorcery" is a magical experiment in a decorating technique called 'sgraffito' - first I put down a layer of deep blue slip, then I used a very fine-pointed tool to scratch away the design, exposing the white clay below. Lastly, I glazed with a clear coating, and then fired it. As you can see from the photos, it creates very fine details not really possible with my normal glaze technique.

Perfect for your favorite bottle of wine, vinegar, home-made spirits, or even perfume.

"Sorcery" is about 3 inches long and just over .75 inches wide at its base.


The business end is made of the highest quality stainless available anywhere, which is then attached using industrial-strength epoxy. (See my blog for more info if you're curious about my process.) Unlike most stoppers that are plated and can flake or pit, these are medical-grade and can be kept in a bottle for as long as you like. These are *not* your run-of-the-mill corner store bottle toppers -- they are a labor of love, each truly one-of-a-kind, take hours to make, and are built to last!


All my creations come very carefully wrapped for safety. If you have special shipping needs, let me know and I'll certainly accommodate.
