Paper and Glass

Last night my friend Jane Moriarty, showroom manager for Neville Johnson hosted an evening event for a few designer makers of paper and glass. The featured work was by Carol Farrow who makes comtemporary hangings of paper and pots of paper and clay, Gillies Jones who makes glass bowls and The London Glassblowing Studio making colorful vases and plates.

With champagne and canapes Jane warmly greeted us and introduced us to the makers of these very beautiful objects.

The selection of work is represented Design Nation, a group to help promote the many and very good designer makers in Britain.  I am always amazed by the quality of beautiful 3d design and applied arts that are made here. Some more views of the paper hanging and pots Carol Farrow and bowls of Gillies Jones:

And many thanks to Jane, who so frequently opens her showroom to many, always gracious, with a smile and a little gossip.
