One of the countries leading Engravers, Jojo has been engraving glass for over 25 years, starting her career in The International Crystal department in Harrods before going freelance when her first daughter was born in 1989. Living in an idyllic part of the Hampshire countryside close to Winchester and rearing all manner of pets for her children, much of Jojo’s designs have an air of quintessential English charm about them.
The glasses available for engraving are all hand made. They are good quality everyday glasses for using and enjoying, and many are dishwasher safe too. No country kitchen should be without a set of Clarissa glasses!
British field sport subjects such as Pheasants, Foxhounds, Salmon, Fallow Deer, and Fishing flies are hugely popular and Jojo has also created a great range of African animal designs inspired by her trips to Kenya.
Alongside her own designs, Jojo also offers a Bespoke service for customers to personalise engraving.
It was an apt chance of fate that two days before the photographers were due to come and shoot the glass for the website, seven guinea fowl chicks were hatched by one of Jojoʼs broody foster bantams. Photographing glass is difﬁcult, photographing glass with chicks is very difﬁcult! Patience and perseverance were rewarded and a new business was hatched. It seemed appropriate to brand it with a guinea fowl!
