It is hard not to notice the visual similarity between red wine and blood, but this one-of-a-kind set of wine glasses and decanters plays up this colorful relationship in a creative (if disturbing) way.
Though the shape is playful and humorous the craft reflects training in the creation of fine crystal. The heart-shaped drinking glass is perhaps the most amusing as well as dynamic piece in the set, each valve filling together from the center.
This limited-edition, hand-blown glassware set by Etienne Meneau has other funky objects as well outside of the drinking glass shown above, including large custom decanters that similarly fill up along variegated veined lines that converge only toward the top.
Because these do not fill from a central point they can fill and empty in strange ways and at different rates, making the experience of pouring into and out of them part of the fun of using them.
