This project was part of the re-branding of Glenfiddich Whiskey by CircleSquare and Sedley Place. The Glass Stag, designed by Jonathan Davis, formed the center-piece for Glenfiddich point-of-sale displays in airports around the world.
We began by sculpting the stylised Stag in wax to Davis' design. This was then moulded and cast in Fiberglass, and finished expertly by hand. It was important at this stage to make sure the surface was immaculate as once it is cast in wax, its very difficult to improve the surface and means hours of polishing further down the line.
We then passed the project over to the talented glass artists Chris Blade and Katya Filmus. The Stag was moulded and cast in wax, and moulded again and cast in glass. To ensure there were no 'breaks' because of the glass shrinking, it was cooled very slowly over a number of weeks in the kiln. The mould was then broken off and the surface polished by hand, and finally with acid, to produce this flawless sculpture.
