Wine decanters come in many different forms and shapes. But regardless of the shape, these special drinking vessels are specifically made to contain sediments in the wine. So, you get a clear, pure wine in every sip. Just a piece of advice, though. If you’re going to choose a wine decanter, you might as well choose the most exciting ones. Let’s say, a drinking vessel that takes the form of blood vessels. So when you pour red wine into it, the vein-like carafes would seem to become actual, huge veins.
Artist Etienne Meneau creates carafes that mimic blood vessels as part of his series called Strange Decanters. The collection includes a wide variety of glass containers in the shape of blood vessels. At first glance, you may think that these vein-like carafes are more appropriate as a piece of décor. But these decanters are reliably functional. The twisting contours and branching tubes can practically retain any sediment from the liquid. This is basically what a decanter is for. Plus, Meneau designed it so the vessels are easy to wash. Simply rinse the vein-like carafes with water and leave it upside down to dry.
Each piece is hand-blown from a thermal-resistant glass called borosilicate. It can hold up to 750 ml of wine or other liquid beverages such as juice, water, or cold tea.
