Jo Downs unveils two stunning new collections in time for spring.
Celebrate the beauty of spring with two stunning new collections by glass designer Jo Downs, each inspired by the shapes and colours of the season on the spectacular Cornish coast, where she lives and works.
“Reflecting this season’s burst of fresh leaf colour…”
New for 2020, Jo’s ‘Seascape’ collection of sculptural wave stands, art frames and wall-mounted panels is inspired by the rippling textures of spring waters, and comes in two colour ways – the fresh green tones of ‘Dawn’, and the soft blue and mauve colours of ‘Dusk’. Jo’s wave stands, in particular, are a totally new design concept, perfect as sculptural pieces, or as reflective backdrops for tealights and candles.
Reflecting this season’s burst of fresh leaf colour, Jo’s ‘Spring Leaves’ are a beautiful new collection of wall-mounted designs in a vibrant palette of emeralds and greens. Handcrafted in her six-piece ‘Drift’, thirteen-piece ‘Windfall’ and fifteen-piece ‘Cascade’ collections, they are simple to wall-mount in whatever combination suits your living space, and promise to bring a splash of colour into your home. Alongside these ‘off the shelf’ collections, Jo also offers a bespoke service for artwork and installations. If you have a space in mind, Jo will work with you to create the perfect custom piece, designed to enhance your interior in your chosen tones and colours. The completed work can then be installed by Jo’s friendly team, giving you a unique designer artwork all of your own.
You can explore Jo’s full collections of interior pieces, including art frames, wall panels, feature bowls, vases, mirrors, and her unique multi-piece wall installations, at her galleries in Surrey and Cornwall, or if you have a bespoke artwork in mind, simply visit her website, where you’ll find plenty of inspirational design ideas.
