    Chalices for the dedicated drinkers

    I made the original one some time ago and Sue pyrographed it as I wasn't too happy with it overall. I put it in my shop and it sold within 10 minutes so I have made a couple more. The original 9" one is the one on the right. I have since made the other two, the middle one is 12" tall, 5" wide and 3" deep. The biggest, unpyro'd one is 13" tall, the bowl is 4" deep and 6" wide. Don't know how much it'll hold but more of a communal chalice or ceremonial one I should think. Sue has yet to burn that one. The original one held just under 1/2 a bottle of wine.

    Those are very nice, Pete. I like the thicker stems...they have a very nice flow and are a refreshing departure from the norm.

    Thanks one and all. Sue's doing a big dragon on the big chalice at the moment. I'll post when she's finished. I wish I had her skills

    Those are really nice. Do you actually use them?

    I don't use these, they are for the shop but yes they are made to be used. The insides have several coats of melamine lacquer which renders them pretty much liquid proof.
