Darby & Jones
Darby & Jones is the result of Gavin Darby and Garry Jones linking their skills to create interesting and entertaining sculptures. These are mostly expected to be outside, however pieces can be made to suit the customer’s requirements. Gary Jones is an established ceramic artist who shares a sense of humour with Gavin, who works with a range a clay to create a wide variety of animals. The clay is high-fired to cope with a wide range of temperatures.
After some ten years of experience, Garry and Gavin were chatting about developing their work, Garry wanted to create garden sculptures but needed a platform to display them. Gavin was looking to create fantastic vehicles and required pilots. Darby & Jones was born.
Towards the end of 2017, the first pieces were shown to the public, with positive feedback and a sale. They took part in the Showborough House Affordable Art Show in 2018, selling everything and winning the public vote for best in show!
