The hues of autumn

As summer inevitably turns to autumn, the seasonal shift brings with it the richest palette of colours.

At Jo Downs Handmade Glass this autumn, you will find a stunning collection of gifts and art pieces to inspire you as we move through this beautiful season. Add some warmth to your interior with Jo’s stunning new ‘Leaves’ installations in the colours of the fall. Handcrafted in a 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 will bring the rich warmth of autumnal colour into your home. Coordinate these with the ever popular ‘Indian Summer’ collection which is inspired by the cobalt blue of a crisp sky, and the dazzling gold and copper of Cornish landscapes. A perfect combination.

As the festive season approaches and thoughts turn to those special gifts, look no further than Jo’s stunning  ‘Seascape Dusk’ collection of sculptural wave stands, art frames and wall mounted panels inspired by the rippling textures of winter heathers with soft blue and mauve tones. And don’t forget to add a designer twist to your Yuletide interior with Jo’s collection of Christmas tree hangings and decorations. Handcrafted in a range of seasonal colours, they include pretty mistletoe, holly and figgy pudding along with cute characters including snowmen and penguins. Cut, crafted, fired and finished at Jo’s Cornwall studio and tied with coloured ribbon, these unique decorations will add a touch of style and sparkle to your celebrations.

As always you will find a huge range of gifts for all the family at each of the Cornwall galleries, in St Ives, Padstow, Fowey, Tintagel and Jo’s spacious gallery and studio in Launceston. Although many of our favourite Christmas fayres are not going ahead this year, there is some exciting out-of-county news with the opening of Jo’s new gallery in Sunningdale, Berkshire, on 31st October 2020.
