Bottled History by Commoner
“Ray Gascoigne has spent a lifetime at sea as a shipwright and sea merchant. His memories and love for ships are made physical through miniatures he constructs with extreme care within old whisky bottles.

Many were built at sea, in the lonely cabin hours of night, and Ray (now 85) continues his craft on land today” (watch video).
