Rita Gayford - Bespoke Display Shelf
Our bespoke wood mill allows the John Jones team to create hand-made presentation solutions for diverse sculpture, including display plinths and shelving. This collection of small-scale ceramic forms has been presented on a solid maple wood shelf design, cut and sanded by hand in our London workshops. Our design team opted to leave the natural grain of the wood exposed and wax the surface to a simple gloss finish. The shelf includes a series of dimples into which each sculpture can sit securely. The back of the shelf is fitting with key-hole plates, allowing the design to be installed safely into the wall with no visible means of support. This creates the impression that the piece is floating and ensures the display remains clean and minimal in appearance.
