Many of the following pieces were mainly designed and modelled by the Arts & Crafts architect, Norman Jewson, with one or two by Gimson. Jewson worked mainly in the Cotswolds, and practised many crafts, including stone and woodcarving, leadwork and decorative plasterwork. He trained under Gimson, and it was he who taught him how to produce decorative plasterwork.
These pieces of plasterwork were copied from original pieces. Most of the pieces are for friezes or ceilings. We can supply any quantity, and would be happy to quote for doing a room. There is a minimum no. of lengths or pieces required to order most of these mouldings. POA. Remember to allow 10% - 15% for wasteage when ordering. We will supply a quote once we know exactly what you require.
These smaller panels have a different look and feel to standard lengths of plaster, more of a hand made look, but this makes them more expensive (in man hours). They also require more labour when fitting them. We give the measurements for each piece. We have shown most pieces as a line drawing, rather than as a photograph, as this conveys the pattern better. Also, we have shown a cross section for each piece, the dotted line defining the raised pattern.
