Hand engraved whiskey barrel and glasses.
Client: Rutgers University Senior Thesis
Role: Concept & Execution
About: Created for my college thesis project, I engraved one full-sized whiskey barrel, four whiskey glasses, and one flask to resurface the art of handmade craft. With today's prominent digital movement, the raw and handmade qualities that make something real and unique seem to have been lost. My goal was to pair this lost art with the technique of hand lettering and illustration. Using a worked and weathered whiskey barrel as my canvas, I was able to achieve the authentic aesthetic I was looking for.
