New ideas from the John Jones Creative Team

Once a month our Creative Team meets at John Jones. Its a voluntary meeting and all our staff are invited to come along and contribute. We look at new trends and developments and generate ideas. For the last meeting we all brought along a design idea based upon a found object. There were lots of fantastic ideas and it was fantastic to see craftspeople from specialist departments sharing knowledge and ideas to develop new designs.

The vintage style frame shown here is a hand painted design on gilded glass with a white gold leaf frame - by our talented gilder Tabitha.

The frame on the right is a welded brass and aluminium frame made of three sections welded together.

Featuring a decorative welded corner design, it has been named the 'Neopolitan' by metal designer Paul.
