THE “SMILIN’ GAL” WINE BOTTLE STOPPER

handcrafted by Practical Art artisan Troy Moody

We’re featuring this item because I often overhear this wittily-uttered exclamation in the shop: “Who doesn’t finish the bottle?!”

You sillies, it’s never for the first bottle. It’s for that second… maybe third. ‘Cause heck, you gotta save some for lunch the next day, right? <wink>

This piece in particular is great because of the interesting process involved with fusing the imagery into the glass. Artisan Troy Moody prints his images in a toner heavy in iron content. When the glass and paper hit the kiln, all of the paper fibers burn away to leave the glass AND the iron from the toner embedded within. (That’s why the image is a sepia tone!) And what better image for a wine stopper than someone that looks like they’re having a really good time?

PRICE: $25
