Refuse to Drink Wine From Anything But These Crazy Anatomical Carafes

Next time someone offers you a glass of wine, refuse unless its presented from a carafe as incredibly attractive as this.

All example of "bio-tableware" by sculptor Etienne Meneau, these beautiful, branched structures are artistic takes on wine carafes. Mimicking the blood supply networks and airways in our bodies, they're each capable of holding a full bottle of wine—even if they don't look like they could.

Downsides: they look a nightmare to pour from, impossible to clean, seem remarkably fragile and are actually art works. But who cares when they're so pretty? [Etienne Menaua via Boing Boing]
