for st. patrick’s day 2013, irish whiskey brand jameson commissioned glass artist david adrian smith to create a limited edition label design, the second in a series of annual releases by different artists. drawing on his craft, smith was interested in translating the intricate glass etchingand ornate gilding found in the decor of irish pubs to the bottle. reminiscent of the classic back bar mirror, his design encourages you to’embrace your irish spirit’ in celebration of festivities surrounding the march holiday.
