The hand-painted Cathedral 25th Anniversary balloon has a sleek long stem, sheer rim, and rounded bowl. The balloon shape allows the aromas and flavors of the bigger, bolder red wine to emerge, increasing the flavor and enjoyment of your wine.
The ballon glass is approximately 8 inches tall and has a 16 ounce capacity. This limited-edition 25th Anniversary set includes two balloon-style red wine glasses.
Cathedral was created when people started looking for matini glasses and margarita glasses in my original colorful designs. I simply couldn't paint martinis and margaritas in the designs I had created, the glass shape was wrong! I couldn't envision all those little square-ish shapes of color on a triangular shaped glass... so I designed Cathedral.
I hadn't realized at the time that it would become a top-5 design of it's own and I would soon be painting it on every shape of glass in my studio. The larger triangular shapes give this design a coloful modern feel that isn't too much of either. The black stem grounds everything making the colors all that more vibrant.
