Within a group of three, we found a common interest of gin and decided to look into the idea around gin and how it has changed perceptions over the years, with this new popularity forming over the past few years. After researching many aspects from history to now, the productions and what goes into the drink to make it gin.
We decided we wanted to find a way to present all our research in an engaging and different way. Links started to form with the idea of us being a group of 3, there is three letters in the word gin and there were three strong research areas, with the history, the distilling process and the botanicals within the production of gin.
So we created a sculpture, using three different process and three didn’t materials. The power of three shines through the whole of this project. We each took
on a letter each and helping one another along the way. My main focus was the g, and showing the ever complex history of gin within our country. I used a transfer process to apply the imagery onto the handmade wooden shape. Around the curve I added a timeline from the 1600’s to now showcasing the process of it becoming a staple drink within the UK.
