We have been working on this piece with our blacksmith for a long time.
They are, like our Cauldrons, wonderful pieces of functional art. The skilled blacksmiths at Wasatch Forge right here in Salt Lake City create each one individually with hammer, tongs, skill, fire, and sweat.
Perfectly sized, exquisitely crafted, and with just the right amount of heft, the spiral loops fit oh-so-satisfyingly between your fingers. The loops and curls are pounded into red-hot iron around the fine end of an anvil, and are so striking you might wish to frame the whole thing.
But don’t. Use it. And then use it some more.
The bottom loop allows you to put a lanyard or leather strap through to keep it handy, or to loop it around one of the legs of your Cauldron where folks can see it.
However you use it, we promise it will elicit comments and praise whenever and wherever it appears.
Do you really need this level of craftsmanship to get into to your frosty beverage? Probably not. But then again, if you love hand work, honest craftsmanship, and have any sense of style, once you put this in your hand, you’ll keep it close forever.
