Sand Ceramic Wine Decanter - Kelly Austin

First Ever

One Off


Despite a swag of accolades, prizes and international residencies under her belt, this is the first time Canadian ceramicist Kelly Austin has decided to work with a retail partner.  Only six of these hand formed decanters have been made, and while it’s almost impossible to calculate how long each piece took to make, Kelly’s best guess is three weeks. Porous yet water tight, clay decanters have been used for more than seven centuries and are championed by sommeliers for their ability to control temperature and aerate wine.  This one beat more than 60 entries to win the Handpicked Handmade Ceramic Decanter prize due to its excellent pour, heavy airtight stopper and clean lines. Your grandmother’s crystal won’t know what’s hit it.
