The textures engraved on Joe Doucet's Wine Chillers are inspired by the wind patterns of cold fronts as they move around the globe.

The fruit of a commission from Wallpaper* for its annual Handmade Exhibit, Doucet set out to create more than an object, he sought to create a ritual.
The result is a series of wine chillers, exquisitely crafted by Neal Feay Studio in Santa Barbra, California.
A chilled bottle of wine is placed inside the containers, which prevent the cold from being lost by convection, conduction and radiation.
The textures engraved in varying depths which wrap around the chillers are inspired by the wind patterns of cold fronts as they move around the globe.
