POP! the cork (corks) and drink up Dean Marks

No ... - - - ...

This is a full symphony of corking fun.

Imagine the amount of wine consumed? Or does Dean collect these over

a long period of time? Whatever, he orchestrates them all into a beautiful happy haptic collage.

(and sends them without a French envelope!)

I am intrigued by the many types and brands of wine, and their vineyard location...

Is that Champagne? Or a nice red wine from Champagne, France???

Unfortunately, the aromas are gone...though the many tones of cork live on!

And 'tis a pity that Dean did not meet up with Val in Sigean...hopefully one day, someday soon!

Thank you muchly, Dean...truly LOOOOVE this piece! (And the French postage stamps, too!) xxx

Hey Dean, what's this about me drinking you under the table? When you come here we'll drink in the typical 'Sigean style' -- lying flat on the floor so you don't have to worry about tables, chairs or falling over. Val

Thank you, Dean, your art is always very functional:

A saw-tray from my wine:

Now a wine-cork pot mat for my pot, er, I mean for Turkish coffee,

or espresso?

In any case, good strong coffee after all that wine :-)

Mmmmm, seems like you don't remember all too much of that wild trip to the south of France, eh, Dean?

"The Château de Valcombe has been in the Ricome family since 1740"

Not to worry, it must have been a good wine the " Ric (o) Me " :-)

Makes a great pot mat as well.  The champagne cork is from a champagne, no more, no less.  And 11 days worth of corks, no more, no less.  Anyway of what I can remember.   I don't know what "Ric Me South of France" means.  Doesn't sound too good.
