Beautiful cross bottles……

Today I would like to introduce you to Cross Bottle Guy, Artie Vanderpool an Interior Stylist and artist living in Western New York. Cross Bottle Guy’s handmade art,marries the rough to the refined with an artistic approach of the most creative regard. Shapely glass vessels-some vintage,some antique,some just gosh’ darn gorgeous-are festooned with crystal. These crystal creations are made using the antique copper foil stained glass method, and each piece of work requires hours of hand work and many steps to result in the final, beautiful work of art. Recycled, reused, remarkable!

Some of his absolutely wonderful creations:

Achieve a similar vignette like the photo above by using bottles created by Cross Bottle Guy for a fraction of the cost of what similar bottles sell for at pricey boutiques! All bottles are 20% off the listed price when you visit the site now!

Those are beautiful bottles. I have 3 cross bottles in my master bathroom by the sink. I love how they look reflected in the mirror. Mine are reproductions though. They're not hand made like the ones that are usually more pricey. I agree. They look gorgeous massed together.

These bottles are just gorgeous! I have seen similar styles in the stores and boutiques around here. Crosses are my signature throughout my home. These would be a lovely addition. Thanks so much for sharing!!

Wow those are some fancy bottle tops. I think I even saw a crown shaped one in there.
