The Land Before Wine

Pete Betcher

Pete works with things from still image design, to live action theater, to film, to silk screening. He currently lives in Austin, Texas, but was born and raised in small town Montana. He likes road bikes, puppies, and peanut butter. He is also the Creative Director of an independent theater group/art collective.

Pete's theater group/art collective is four members strong, and they use their design and art talents to fund other artistic projects. They met while going to school at the same fine arts department in Missoula, where they started working together doing short original plays that combined movement, music, dance, and theater. They have performed in several cities across the US including Portland Oregon, Missoula Montana, and Austin Texas.

Currently, the four are working together as an Art Collective creating to their hearts' content. Pete's designs started with a last minute gift for his mother, and have grown into a wide array of items, including several original lighting designs.

      I got this for my husband for Valentine's Day. We both love it. It is so unique. I read all the reviews before buying it. You should be careful when inserting the wine bottles because the wood is not sturdy, but I would definitely buy it again for us or as a gift for others. We love it!

        This was a housewarming gift for a friend of mine who just moved into a new apartment. It was a perfect item for the occasion! My only complaint is that it might be too delicate/easily breakable. We have yet to see!

            Got it as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend and it now has pride of place in the house. The only con really is that it was more fragile than I'd expected - just be gentle with putting the wine bottle in and don't wrench it out - but otherwise it's fantastic. The perfect gift for my boyfriend who still loves dinosaurs but also has grown up tastes.

                Comments about WINE-O-SAUR WINE BOTTLE HOLDER:

                Loved the clever design of this wine holder. Had expected the materials of the piece to be slightly more durable - it is a very lightweight wood construction so I am curious how it will hold up to bottle holding use! Giving this as an anonymous gift in a Yankee Trader swap and think it will be most sought after!

                    Very cute idea and fun gift. But the wood is so thin and flimsy - it broke the first time we put a bottle in it!! Plus it was a very tight fit for the wine bottle.

                    I would not recommend this item.
