Pouring Wine Has Never Been So Artistic With These Vein-Like Containers
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.
