  • Wedding goblets

    Out of the blue I got an email from someone who had stumble across my website asking if I could possibly make a pair of goblets for their celtic wedding. Never one to lookm a gift horse in the mouth I said yes.

    This is what I have made so far. If they like it then I will do the really difficult part, duplicating it.



    It's cherry, 7" tall, bowl is 3" dia. & 2 1/2" deep as they want to drink toast with mead from it I have coated the inside with copious layers of melamine lacquer. he captive rings are traditional for wedding goblets and symbolise the unity of the couple. Doesn't sow in the photos but the outside is finished with friction polish and burnished to a very high gloss.

          Both sets are absolutely stunning, I love the rings at the bottom, they look so real!

          I have flicked backwards and forwards between the two pics to try and decide which I prefer but they are both so lovely I couldn't decide!

          Well done!

                              Great work, they are both really stunning. I've never been to a celtic wedding but absolutely adore mead, lol.
