British Craftsmanship - Pangolin Editions
18 April 2013
John Jones is very proud to be a British manufacturer, operating from London workshops with talented craftspeople. Every month, we will be shining a spotlight on some of our favourite companies adhering to the same values, creating beautiful products which are uniquely British with a UK based workforce!
This month we’re exploring Pangolin Editions, one of Britain’s leading sculpture foundries. Based in Gloucestershire and run by a husband and wife team, the foundry produces metal sculptural work for internationally recognised artists including Antony Gormley, Damien Hirst and Marc Quinn. Traditional skills which date back hundreds of years including wax block casting, metal working and sand casting are employed with dazzling results and the team pride themselves on fine craftsmanship. Pangolin has successfully revived ancient recipes for blue, white and grey patinas and are constantly looking to expand into new possibilities. Alongside their workshops, the Pangolin gallery showcases a selection of bronzes and themed exhibitions.
