Flow is an outcome from the synergy between art, design and craftsmanship. An art piece and not just a decanter.
It is inspired by the up-and-coming volcanic wines, wines from grapes that are grown in rich volcanic soils in various places around the world, such as Santorini, Sicily, the Azores, the Canary Islands and many more.
These wines mainly from indigenous grape varieties, express the richness, complexity and power of their volcanic terroirs. In the same manner, the Flow decanter expresses the greatness of the volcano while it mimics its lava flow, as it is traveling to finally cool down and form its shape. The clay is then fired at 1030 & 1080°C similar to the lava flow that usually varies between 700 and 1200 degrees.
The molten part which seems to fall from the surface where the decanter is placed, makes the decanter extremely easy to grasp while pouring wine in a wineglass.
The decanter can be found at the Museum of Cycladic Art Shop.
