The hand-painted Sunset 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.
Every so often I explore new ideas - many of which never make it further than the local craft fair. Recently, however, one of these ideas became a new design. The trouble was I couldn’t decide on the colors of the sky... Did I want the cooler blues, purples, and pinks? Or did I want to add the warmth of yellows and oranges to the mix?
Once more I decided to call upon a few of my family and friends for input - which did they prefer? Well, that didn’t help! The responses were divided practically in half. While everyone agreed that they really liked this new design, they just could not agree on a color palette for the sky!
So, faced with indecisiveness, I decided to paint both. Sunset, the sun is beginning it's descent upon the horizon and the sky is dusky blue with swaths of pink and purple as well, a calm evening to end a summer's day.
