Wine Bottle Holder by Rajala Wine Bottle Holder by Rajala
The bottle goes into the middle and glasses into the extended hands of the figures. I don't have any proper wine glasses so I need to take an "in action" photo later.

The figures are forged except for the head that was done by metal spinning. Originally I intended to forge each figure from one single piece but all experiments failed when I got to the head. The parts were put together by gas welding.

:heart: I think this would be cool just to display, not even for wine or anything. Great work!

Thanks! Currently it is on display and not in use, so that works indeed. :)

Wow, that's so cool! I work with clay and I have a terrible time making anything that will actually fit a cork or other items (holding a wine bottle, for example) after two firings. Clay shrinks so much! I'd love to see this piece in action. :) I'm totally impressed.

I don't even know where I got the idea. Though I've learned that the best ideas just pop up from seemingly nowhere.

In a short:

Think nothing of it; just let things
Flow as they do. Think too much
About it all, and the messier things
Come out to be, making bad use of
Force than to make use of naturality.

A short poem about letting things such as ideas flow. The majority of ones poke too hard for ideas. However, forget the majority of course, stay in the minority; that's where all greatness and exoticness comes about.

Brilliant work! My parents would love something like this for a gift--I may make one for them myself, but my material is probably too weak to hold a full bottle of wine + glasses... =( I'll think of something.

Anyway, it looks great!

Thank you very much!
If the material is the same you've used on your other works I'm afraid it won't hold. But you could work out something like this.
