Stainless Steel Wine Goblet by ou8nrtist2 Stainless Steel Wine Goblet by ou8nrtist2
I'm an extraordinary glass breaker,often from across the room.Thus delicate wine goblets are very short lived in my presence,(even when held by others),so here is an effort in an Organic Style prototype that should last a lifetime...
Cold formed,forged,machined, and welded (SS304) stainless steel.
The cup is a stock pipe cap for the wine industry that I have pushed on my press with a home made die so it has a convex bottom.And the foot is a scrap from laser cutting i got by dumpster diving that I cold formed with the same convex die...
I just received a commission last night for a couple of these from a woman in Florida and I told her I plan to refine some of the details and make the stem out of forged 3/8ths solid square bar instead of 1/2"square tubing like this one.

This is gorgeous! I love all the colors that are reflected in the shiny metal.

I can't believe this is made from recycled materials.

All you need now is a champagne flute.. ;)
Seriously, though, I can definitely grok your fullness, when it comes to breaking wine glasses [or just about any other kind of glass]. At a point now where we use plastic picnic wine glasses and/or these really heavy duty drink glasses that we have - which actually began life as candle holders.

Anyway...
Another excellent piece of work, dude.
Cool thing is, you could keep it refrigerated and it would keep your wine chilled a lot longer than a regular glass. Plus, you wouldn't have to worry about knocking it about, when you were putting up the leftover chili.
Nice.

I keep re-imagining the design.I think I need to make the stem on this thing just a bit narrower.Think I'll try 3/8ths solid square bar instead of this 1/2" tubing on the next one.
The cup is a stock flat bottomed pipe cap from the wine industry that I've pushed with a die for that nice convex bottom.The foot too is recycled laser-cut scrap disc scored from dumpster diving at a big local fabrication shop that gives me carte blanche...

Thank you.
Still morphing the design.
Need to make the joints cleaner and more flowing,less abrupt.The point is to not have your eye stop on any one point on the composition but keep wandering across the whole piece...

the "cup" part looks like the end of a little cylinder/tank. It takes a big press to form SS like that!

It's a stock pipe cap for the wine industry which I then pressed into that convex shape on the bottom, with a home made die on my 20 ton press.
