Forged Stainless Steel Wine Goblets by ou8nrtist2 Forged Stainless Steel Wine Goblets by ou8nrtist2
Here is the improved iteration of my stainless wine goblet.The stem is a tad narrower and forged from solid stock as compared to the square tubing I used for the first one.
These two are commissioned by a client in Florida who saw the first one online two days ago.
Again,these are made from recycled materials.The cup is a pipe cap from the wine industry,and the foot is a scrap from laser cutting,both I have cold formed to a convex shape with a die on my 20 hydraulic press.

Update Jan 31st 2013
The client received the goblets today and let me know she's overjoyed.
I'm always a little bit on pins and needles until I hear back from clients my pieces are well received...

Simple and elegant design. It's always nice to see good metal work, it's much more rare than other mediums.

Yes the training is getting harder and harder to find.
I was trained by my father.

This is a very nice set. In the future, I think you should make the stem blend into the base to give a more uninterrupted look. I like how the stem is twisted in opposite directions, and the contrast of the smooth top and bottom with the pattern of the stem.

These are really interesting wine goblets. As usual, you add a bit of tactile experience in your objects of art - the fingers just want to hold the stem of the wineglass. Very nice.

Contrasting color and texture are exploited indigenous qualities of forged stainless steel.Letting a material speak for itself has always been one of my aspirations...
Thanks for noticing!

Thanks Kuzy.
Next i want to try a much more flattened foot on the goblet (similar to many glass flutes)to see if that is any aesthetic improvement.

The bar looks 100X better than the tubing! These are extraordinary.
