About / Terms


Cross Bottle Guy (Artie Vanderpool) is an Interior Stylist and artist living and working in Western New York. Born and raised in West Central Texas, Artie grew up in a home that fostered the creative spirit, energized the artistic nerve, and rewarded coloring outside the lines.

Since 2009, Cross Bottle Guy's hand made art, marries the rough to the refined with an artistic approach of the most creative regard. Born in the North Tonawanda, New York stained glass studio: Gleam & Glimmer, Cross Bottle Guy uses shapely and unique glass vessels - some vintage, some antique, some just gosh'darn gorgeous - festooning them with crystal, shells, corals, and antique spanish metalware.

These one-of-a-kind creations are made using the antique copper foil stained glass method, and each piece of work requires hours of hand work and many steps to result in the final, beautiful work of art. Recycled, reused, remarkable! Decorative use only. Size and color will vary; heights listed are approximate.
