Meet the Maker

Designer and Founder 

Jo Downs Handmade Glass As a child, I was very creative. I sketched and painted. At sixteen I was encouraged to do an Art Foundation course with the intention of becoming a potter.

When I discovered glass that all changed. The textures, colours, and rhythms of nature are what fill my work.

I think people know my glass instantly, for the palette of colours, the rich textures, and the motifs of sand, sky, and sea.
