Artist: Tim Curtin I've been working in clay for ten years now, and what originally started as a lark has become a definite obsession. I love the ability to sit down with a lump of mud and turn it into something beautiful and long-lasting with nothing more than my hands and fire. These are *not* your run-of-the-mill corner store bottle toppers -- they are a labor of love, each truly one-of-a-kind, take hours to make, and are built to last! The business end is machined from the highest quality stainless available anywhere, which is then carefully attached to my creations using industrial-strength epoxy. Unlike most stoppers that are plated and can flake or pit, these are medical-grade and can be kept in a bottle for as long as you like. Perfect for anything from wine to perfume to vinegar.

Description:
Protect your bottle! This wine or whiskey bottle topper is an offwhite creature with spikes on his back, two pointy legs, and a pointy tail. He's got his head in for a sniff, and he's on guard! The tip of each spike has a touch of brown. Fun, distinctive stoneware and steel art made in Vermont.

This will look great on any bottle - a very distinctive and beautiful piece.

Perfect for your favorite bottle of wine, vinegar, home-made spirits, or even perfume.

"Spike" is about 4.5 inches long from tip to tip, and just over an inch at his widest.


His USA-made business end is made of the highest quality stainless available anywhere, which is then attached using industrial-strength epoxy. (See my blog for more info if you're curious about my process.) Unlike most stoppers that are plated and can flake or pit, these are medical-grade and can be kept in a bottle for as long as you like.

All my creations come very carefully wrapped for safety. If you have special shipping needs, let me know and I'll certainly accommodate.
