For its ‘Barrel Art’ initiative, the Glenfiddich Scotch whisky distillery approached Johnson Banks to create a project from used Glenfiddich whisky barrels.
The Johnson Banks pieces for ‘Barrel Art’ are meant to showcase the 12-30 years that Glenfiddich single malt whisky is aged in barrels. The first seven images are the finished pieces that will show at the Studio Warehouse in Glasgow this week; the final three are from the design process.
Johnson Banks’ ‘Barrel Art’ showcases the love and patience that goes into Glenfiddich Scotch whisky. While each piece is distinct from the others, there’s no doubt that it came from a whisky barrel.
