|Airlie Gardens Bottle House|
|The Airlie Gardens Bottle House was created by a local artist, Virginia Wright-Frierson in 2004. It is officially named the "Minnie Evans Sculpture Garden Bottle House" after an artist/gatekeeper that worked at Airlie for many years. This bottle house is also referred to as the "chapel". Frierson used bottles of all shapes and sizes as well as cement and chicken wire in its creation. There are references to Minnie Evans work in the designs of faces, butterflies and Buddhas. At the center of the house is a tree sculpture complete with birds and nests. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, 3, and 4.|
Sandia Park, NM
|Tinkertown opened in 1983 as a one-room museum containing the miniature wood-carved figures of Ross Ward. Ward's creations and collections increased over the years into today's complex of 22 rooms. More than 50,000 glass bottles were used to create the walls that surround the museum. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 3.|
|Boston Hills Pet Memorial Park
Boston Hills Pet Memorial Park features a bottle wall from 1942. It is part of a small building used for storage. For more, see their website.
The Sultana Jug is located behind chain link fencing on private property. It appears to be used for storage. I believe this bottle house was built to resemble a moonshine jug. Does anyone know more about it?
|Sean Sands' House|
|Sean Sands' House was created with papercrete, bottles and other recycled materials. Papercrete is a blend of newspapers, magazines and concrete. The structures do not contain any wood and many of them are partly underground. Sean has been working on this project since the late 1990s. For more, see these websites: 1, 2, and 2.|
