oak veneer cut from the face of Glenfiddich whisky casks, glue, found brick
 
Collection of William H Grant & Sons

A veneer shell representing moths settled on a typical Scottish shed door. The veneer was cut from the face of the staves of casks that had previously contained wine, bourbon or madeira, used by Glenfiddich in the aging process to impart flavour to their whisky. In their gift shop, Glenfiddich sells items such as candleholders made from cask staves: this is our version of that.
