The hand-painted Fan 25th Anniversay 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.
The artist uses wispy, bold strokes of color against a hand-frosted glass. Fan is an elegant design for all seasons!
I’ve often been told I should have named this design “feather”. When I created this design, I was thinking of the fans made of feathers - colorful and playful. Not the electric fans we see all over in the summer time moving the hot humid air or the throngs of people surrounding a superstar, it was much simpler than all that. The fans of days gone by, when ladies wore gowns to dinner and everyday activities were of a grander scale. The elegance in daily use.
By the way, this is my mother’s favorite design. Whenever she needs a gift for a special occasion, she calls me to paint “something in Fan” for her.
