Uwe Stoneman (formerly Riek) is a sculptor and printmaker based in Scotland. This print in a bottle was made in the 1990s whilst he was working as a nature warden on the extreme north-west coast of Scotland, for an income to support his art. Much of his work at this time was abstract, but inspired by his studies of the movements of water. He made a series of drypoints at the Glasgow Print Studio, though this seems to have been an independent project rather than an edition.

The work is an interesting application of print to a 3D format, and plays with the idea of bottle/liquid, and abstract/representational. It can also be seen as a representation of landscape, and a witty reference to the old sailors' craft of making model ships in bottles.
