Offwhite and orange lizard-head with purple and white curly tongue wine or whiskey bottle stopper. Distinctive art handmade in Vermont from stoneware clay, glazed, and then epoxied to medical-grade stainless steel.

"Thing 3" is the third of my creature stoppers on its way back *out* of the bottle. From the way his tongue is curled up, it looks like he enjoyed what he found!

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

"Thing 3" is about 3.5 inches long and one inch wide at the eyeballs.

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.

Black acrylic display stand included free!:
