The long slender stem of the Cathedral Flute allows you to hold the glass without affecting the temperature of the drink. The deep bowl enhances the visual appeal of the bubbles rising through the crisp liquid to the surface. This unique design helps retain champagne's signature carbonation by reducing the surface area at the opening of the bowl.
The larger triangular shapes give this design a colorful modern feel that isn’t too much of either.
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.
