Century Bottles with Sand Art


Hearing-impaired and mute, late artist Andrew Clemens created an amazing series of sand bottles that date back more than a hundred years ago.

These glass bottles, which Clemens spent hours creating, are packed with colorful sand without the use of any glue. The late artist from Iowa would use specially made tools to form the sand grains into intricate images.

McGregor’s art is available at auction, though be warned it isn’t cheap and runs into the tens of thousands of USD.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
