Terra Cotta Wine Chiller

A simple but elegant terra cotta wine chiller. This is not a cooler that you put a bottle in and pack with ice. This type of chiller is soaked in water for 10-15 minutes, drained, and placed in the refrigerator for one hour prior to use.
Just a simple pattern that I impressed using the pointy end of a can opener. The patterned part of the chiller was highlighted with a red iron wash which I applied with a brush and then wiped off with a damp sponge.
I made a saucer for the chiller and glazed the inside with a clear glaze just to protect polished table surfaces from condensation just in case the pot ever does sweat.
