Bottle Houses of Cap-Egmont

Built by a retired fisherman in the early 1980’s,the Bottle Houses of Cap-Egmont on Prince Edward Island are just that: a house, bar and chapel built from cement and around 30000 discarded bottles.

Here are some more bottle structures, built this time in California by Tressa Prisbey between 1956 (when she was 60!) and 1981. “Grandma” Prisbey built a whole Bottle Village out of mortar, bottles and found objects: some 13 buildings and more than 20 sculptures. The village was damaged by an earthquake in 1994, and help is being sought for the rebuilding effort.
