I made Verde Wine Chiller on the potter’s wheel using stoneware clay and then trimmed a flat bottom. With a beaded rim to protect from chipping and a slightly open form to allow for ice chips if desired.
As for the “Verde” Glaze, I start by dipping 2/3 of the pot in a copper green glaze which I make. Next I dip half the pot in a cream rust glaze that I also make. The overlap produces an interesting effect that adds interest. The result is clean and tailored and soothing.
If you like, place Verde Wine Chiller in the freezer for an hour or so before opening a wine. Then place the wine bottle directly inside the sleeve. The cold stoneware will help to chill a wine and also to keep an already chilled wine cold longer. But if you prefer not to put the chiller in the freezer, that’s okay too. The stoneware will still help keep an already chilled bottle of wine cold longer.
Use this chiller to organize your favorite kitchen tools or as a vase! And it’s easy to store when not in service.
Makes a great wedding, anniversary, holiday, birthday, housewarming gift!
