    A green glass bottle hangs upside down, supported against the wall like a dispenser in a bar. Tony Carter is interested in the symbolism and interpretation of material objects. He has commented that his bottle sculptures are concerned less with the bottles themselves, than the bottles as containers or conduits. They provide a means by which energy can move from one place to another. In this case, the bottle does not contain water, but a rolled up label. Tony Carter studied Fine Art at Newcastle University and gained his masters degree from Reading University in 1968.
