Wining in Style

A Bordeaux born sculptor and painter, Etienne Meneau provides unconventional ways to consume the most famous product of his home town: wine. His collection of Strange Decanters – including both wine glasses and carafes – retail for between €1500 and €5000.

Here is his Little Heart – or the-so-called Petit Coeur. It’s an abstract reinterpretation of the human heart. The unique glass is 20cm tall and is made of borosilicate glass. As was the case with his previous exclusive decanter series (scroll down below), extremely limited quantities have been produced. Only 12 have meen made – 8 of them with a unique number and the artist’s signature, and another 4 with artist proofs. Each one of these pieces costs approx € 1500.

Carafe N°5 and Carafe N°6 of his Strange Decanters collection are inspired by the vines of Bordeaux. Each decanter is 65cm tall and holds a standard 75cl bottle of wine, resembling the branches or roots of a plant, or veins in the human body when filled. Only 8 pieces of each edition in the Strange Decanter collection have been produced, retailing for between €2000 and €5000 each.
