Glassware - Jo Downs
Jo Downs is one of the world’s most respected fused glass designers. Working from her Cornwall studio, Jo’s work draws inspiration from the beautiful coastal landscape while her advanced fusion techniques allow for the creation of abstract designs of great individuality and depth.
‘When you melt glass it comes alive, its quite fascinating. I have an abstract attitude – I don’t want to control it too much and I know every piece is going to be different in some way from the last’
Jo’s designs are simple and distinctive. What each has in common is its beginnings as a sandwich either of purely different elements of glass or with fillings of wafer thin motifs, trademarks of Jo’s style that has won her fans across the globe.
