“David, the Distillery on Jones Creek weathervane and cupola went up today at White Oak Plantation. As always, we made an event out of it and had a group of Horticultrist from across America touring the property as your work of art was installed. As with ever piece you have created for me, The Bourbon Barrel Weathervane, is unique and one of a kind, and I love it!!” Thanks, John
