Wood goblets are very lovely turned objects of art. They are seldom used for actual liquids but hold a place in most turner's hearts.
You can also turn the base, the stem and add a glass top for creating a fully usable goblet. Several companies provide the glass for the goblet these days.
And if you're going to shoot for art, captured rings always look good on goblets.
