Cast Copper Goblets by VandaLann Cast Copper Goblets by VandaLann
The top of the goblets and stem were fabricated the rest was cast around it. No solder needed! They are the prefect size for a shot.

I love the concept of not adding solder and rather casting to perfection. Absolute love.

Whenever I hear that real craftsmanship is dead I'll give people a link to your gallery. This is great. I assume they were modeled on a cala lilly. They have the same shape and grace. Keep it up...

Do they leave a metallic taste when you drink out of them?
Reply
:iconvandalann:
VandaLann Featured By Owner May 22, 2009
Copper does leave a metalic taste in the mouth but tinning or silver/gold plating the inside could fix that. The taste also depends on what you are drinking.

interesting forms, kind of reminds me of the fusion work I messed with a bit, or Elliot Pujol's crazy constructs.

Casting metal in place is interesting, I'm guessing you used a simple medium melt wax given the thinness of the spindle and the chunkiness of the rest of the forms. Was this a gravity pour, centrifugal, or vacuum cast?

VandaLann Featured By Owner May 21, 2009
It's just the same as any bi-metal casting. I used soft wax to form around the pre made cup and forged stem. Then I burnt it out and threw it in the centerfuge.

these are absolutely incredible. for some reason i imagine sitting in a frigid, dimly-lit room listening to Emilie Autumn while drinking from one of these. no clue why i thought Emilie Autumn, but i'm sure they'd be lovely while listening to anything.

they look fantastic!. But are they safe to drink from?
Reply
:iconvandalann:
VandaLann Featured By Owner May 21, 2009
They are safe just leave a metalic taste in your mouth. The next ones I make I might tin the inside or silver plate it.

Probably not. I want to make some silver or schibuichi ones that will be more useable. Copper leaves a metal taste. I guess I could tin the inside or silver plate them.

The design feels new, although it also looks ancient at the same time...now that's great! I like how the shape of each goblet vaguely ressemble a withered flower.
