Description:
Deep royal blue with white flecks. Truly distinctive art handmade in Vermont from stoneware clay, glazed, and then epoxied to medical-grade steel. An heirloom piece!

"Blue Corkscrew" is one of my longer stoppers, and will look amazing on top of any bottle you want to show off. (I have a similar one in a bottle of scotch - its always a conversation starter!) This guy was tough to form - pulling a piece this long and having it curl properly without breaking is very hard to do. Now that its been fired it has a very nice heft and solid feel in your hand. This is a favorite glaze combination for me - the little white flecks and swirls on top of the royal blue are hard to describe, but truly quite beautiful.

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

"Blue Corkscrew" is about 7 inches high from the tip of the stainless to tip of the curl. Width-wise, its about 2 inches at its widest.

(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 stoppers -- 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.
