A Well-Rounded, Dome-estic Wine with Fuller Aspirations


Richard Pim gives new meaning to the word upcycling with his 11 foot high dome with four concrete arches, built from 3,000 wine bottles, each cemented with the bottom facing out.

"One day I was sat in the garden drinking a glass of wine and as I held the bottle up to the sun it made an amazing sparkly effect. I thought 'that's it, I will make it out of wine bottles'." he said archly. "I had no problems getting hold of bottles. Most of Herefordshire knew what I was doing so I have had lots of donations. I have also drunk a good few myself."

The retired geologist opens his garden to the pubic; it's in Pembridge, near Leominster, Herefordshire. ::Mirror via ::Splurch
