Tressa "Grandma" Prisbrey at the age of 60, needing space for her collection of 17,000 pencils began building structures out of bottles. She built about 15 small rooms. Amber beer bottles, green wine bottles. Any bottles could become the essence of "Grandma" Prisbey's Bottle Village.
She said, she took a couple of days off to count “one million and fifteen bottles." I photographed "Grandma" Prisbrey when she was 84.
