Margarita! Juicy, streaky, lime green and black round layers of glass were combined to make a colorful, eye-catching bottle topper. The green layer was lightly but permanently fused onto the black layer, to maintain the layered or high relief look. The cabochon is mounted on an Aanraku base made of stainless steel with a flexible rubber gasket for keeping your chosen wine, oil or other liquids fresh. This is a large wine stopper with some weight to it, so it nicely balances the look of the bottle beneath it.

Enjoy this in your own kitchen or give it as a unique house warming gift that will be well used. Either way, rest assured that no one will have one exactly like it! The round glass cabochon measures approximately 2 1/4 inches wide and the stopper is approximately 5" long. This glass is food safe, but should be hand washed, and do not put it in an oven or microwave.

To get the desired shape and size involves cutting, grinding, cleaning, firing, some additional cold work and then a second firing to pull all of the design elements together. The piece was gradually fired to 1475 degrees, then a controlled cooling or annealing that adds strength and durability. This process typically takes 24-48 hours. All of my pieces are created and fired in my home studio, which is smoke free.
