Oliver Ashworth, a UK artist based in Gloucestershire, has created a sculpture using 160 green Bottlegreen bottles produced by O-I. Ashworth took inspiration from an elderflower blossom for the 2.2m-tall stainless steel and glass sculpture that appeared at the Cartier International Polo this summer. The sculpture, called “Glass and Light“, uses 160 of the drinks company“s 500ml bottles that are cut to various lengths and screwed into a cap set into an illuminated sphere. Ashworth worked with O-I to explore the various ways the bottles could be used in a sculpture that complemented the Bottlegreen brand. The project took two months to complete. Bottlegreen managing director Simon Speers said: We are pleased that O-I worked with Oliver to create this exciting piece for us. Oliver has managed to create a sculpture that reflects the quality products whilst highlighting the craftsmanship that goes into the development of drinks.
