Welcome to the Wine, Wine West

Like the designer, I’m sure, I’ve broken my share of wine glasses, and I don’t even really like wine! I usually put whiskey and coke in there, then I don’t find the whole glass until spring cleaning. For the wine enthusiast (or drunk) with short shelves or clumsy tendencies, it’s untrained designer Sherwood Forlee to the rescue!

The designer, Sherwood Forlee, puts it like this: “glasses that are separable from their stems for more compact storage, and a metal stem for enhanced strength. A rubber gasket safely and snugly links the glass that fits your drink choice with the stem. Stems are available in a variety of colors and finishes.”

Simple and beautiful. I’d like a set with red/yellow/green color combo stems made of steel. Extra heavy metal would be extra awesome.

Also be sure to check out Forlee’s webpage: he’s a real dude with a barely completed mathematics schooling who “calls himself a designer because it sounds hip and no one likes hanging around a nerd at a party.”

My kind of fellow.

  • Great and useful design. I would love to have some of this at my home…

    I am kinda dubious about the durablity of these from the threads getting bound up with “goop” to the ability of the glass to take the loads. This is a version of what we have used on boats for years, they are made of lexan not glass.

    Well, glasses are easy to take in the cupboard because they have a stem, I’m afraid I would make them fall if they don’t.
    Other than that, it’s not a bad idea, but it won’t save you lot of space, as the top of the glasses are not stackable.

    (hmm, too small ray trace depth in the last image?)

      Check the last pic again, the top of the glasses are more stackable than they would have been with the stem attached. Also the last pic is weird because I’d think you’d want to put them upside-down.

      But then again, it seems like the bottom of the glass is flat because of the hole where the stem-hole goes.

    This is a decent concept, needing further development.

  • Chris Burns says:

    do go on

  • powers says:

    Well, it’s not my concept to elaborate on, but for an innovative design like this, why not go all out? For starters, why go with traditional wine glass shapes? If one of the major goals of the concept really is stackability, might as well redesign those things to be truly stackable. Which I guess you think they are, but I disagree.

    And the title for this article is a huge stretch.

    Heya! I understand this is somewhat off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog like yours take a large amount of work?

    I’m completely new to blogging but I do write in my diary every day.

    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience
    and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas
    or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

  • Thanks for ones marvelous posting! I definitely enjoyed reading it, you could
    be a great author. I will make sure to bookmark your blog and may come back in the foreseeable future.
    I want to encourage you to continue your great posts, have a nice evening!

    Redheads and folks with course hair will typically be higher shedders than blondes
