“I was born and raised in iron ore country, where you could breathe it and smell it every day. And I’ve always worked with it in one form or another.”

 
 
 
 
 
The iron gates depicted on bottles of Heaven’s Door Whiskey were created by Bob Dylan at his metalworking shop, Black Buffalo Ironworks, and are comprised of found objects collected from farms and scrap yards across America: “everything from farm equipment, children’s toys, kitchen utensils and antique fire arms to chains, cogs, axes and wheels.”

“Dylan is that rare person who can move effortlessly between music, word, ink, paint, as if he’s just futzing around with a few different instruments in the studio. Yet again and again he reflects life back to us with a truth and simplicity that defy words... Seemingly unworried about how something looks, he’s not after artistic perfection but something larger, a moment, a feeling. The effect is enthralling.”
