Lift Your Drink

Born in the Rocky Mountains and raised in the backcountry of Alaska, blacksmith Alexandra Paliwoda expresses her passion for wild places with her hand-forged ironwork. To make this eye-catching piece, rough-hewn recycled steel is made malleable and hammered into a curvaceous ribbon that artfully balances that special wine bottle with a sculptural swoop. In addition to giving your vino a rustic, yet refined touch for special dinners and everyday display, the rest's pierced upsweep is counterbalanced by the scroll-shaped tail to cradle your reds and whites at an angle ideal for preserving their flavor. The hammered finish is sealed with an environmentally friendly clear coat, and the cradle's base is polished for a non-scratch surface. Handmade in Three Forks, Montana.

Alexandra Paliwoda

Inspired by all things wild and free.

Born in the Rocky Mountains and raised in the backcountry of Alaska, Alexandra Paliwoda expresses her love of wild places with her hand-forged ironwork. True to its name, The Backcountry Blacksmith was forged by Alexandra in the Wrangell St. Elias National Park of Alaska, a truly pristine and wild place. Thus inspired by nature, Alexandra creates functional art for the home using recycled and upcycled steel.

Alexandra began working with metal in year 2000 when she was certified as a farrier by Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana forging horseshoes for various horseshoeing applications. Working with horses and in agriculture, living a subsistence lifestyle in Alaska, building her own cabin in the north country, and tending to explore the road less traveled, Alexandra feels that the important things in life, when the day is done, are the experiences. A few of Alex's many interests include travel, photography, playing guitar, fly fishing, kayaking, skiing, and spending time with those she loves. She makes sure her dog Jasper gets his daily run, and of course, melds metal into art!

"I created lasting products that have minimal waste or carbon footprint in terms of production. Hand-forged ironworks are made from recycled materials. They introduce into one's daily life a reminder of the outside world. I believe that each one of us can help everyday in terms of preserving, protecting and caring for the great outdoors by making the choice to be more responsible at home, at work, really just in our own individual spheres of life." collection

      Alexandra Paliwoda's design is sleek, but still has old-fashioned charm. Would you use it to display a bottle of your favorite wine?

      I would like this more if it stored more than one bottle. Does not seem very practical to buy this just for one bottle.
