No secret here: among our Evil Pleasures, Dan and I count single malt whiskies in the Top Ten, just slightly below kiln-glass, Scotland and our cat Annie.
So, no surprise that I was hugely excited a few months ago when a Google Alert took me to the blog of a major Scottish artist making a window for a Highland distillery, using Bullseye frits.
I contacted Mr Clark – ahhhh the miracles of the Internet – and he was kind enough to give me further information on the project and to promise updates.
Today I received an image of the finished window installed.
As the distillery is just a few miles down the road from our Scottish home, it’s a certainty that Dan and I will be stopping by in the future to replenish our whisky cabinet and to gaze fondly at all those Tested Compatible ambers that, when mixed by a color master like Clark, can so beautifully replicate the yummy tones of the various glorious single malts.
And just in case the window looks petite installed in the distillery, here’s a process shot of the design at full scale.
Congratulations on a brilliant job by the artist. Website here.
And another process shot of the kiln work.
Kudos to the German studio that he worked with on the project, the ever-brilliant Derix. Website here.
And finally, to our neighbors in Tain in the Scottish Highlands. Learn more here: Slàinte!
