the passion for wine can bring one in all directions...

i think that apart from beer, whisky, cognac, port, perhaps some other spirits and tea in this part of the world, i have rarely come across another drink than wine that generates as much passion in people.  certainly, i have never heard people waxing lyrical about orange juice or coca cola (except perhaps in advertising jingles on tv...).

and so this week, i was charmed by an email i received from a perfect stranger who would love that i consider buying his "strange carafes" which are really pieces of art.







my favourite, the "little heart" as below, would set me back 1000 euro should i decide to order it.  however, i will have to make it quick because there are only 8 available, all numbered and signed by the artist.
