Jane Maddison Ceramic Wine Breathers
Beautifully handmade by Jane Maddison, these award-winning designed ceramic wine breathers have been created to allow your red wine to breath in the bottle.
Jane creates moulded then porcelain cast animal sculptural forms, designed to fit over the neck of the bottle, to allow the opened wine to breathe while keeping the flies away. This can also be used as a beautifully decorative wine bottle cap if you need to store an unfinished bottle.
Each animal has been delicately decorated by hand with coloured underglazes, making each piece entirely unique. The other collection of animals that we hold in the gallery include: Dogs, Cats, Hare, Rooster, Crow, Mole, Mouse, Fox, Donkey, Eel, Badger, Goose, Goat, Bear
ABOUT THE MAKER: After graduating from Croyden College of Art in 1969, Jane ran a small business in London producing handmade tiles and silk screen blinds. She later moved to Lincolnshire where she set up her Ceramics Studio producing both sculptural and domestic ware. Jane’s wonderful little animals result from her mother’s attempts to let a bottle of red wine breathe whilst keeping the fruit flies away. Jane thought that a purpose-built sculptural top was a better solution and so the wine breather was born.
