Chris Jones has always had an eye for composition, form and detail.
A degree in cinema led to a career running an independent theatre where his critic’s eye ensured that only the best of Canadian and international films were played. His love of excellence in art broadened with his role as Member Services Coordinator for the Saskatchewan Craft Council. Directing the jury process meant ensuring that craft standards as well as a focus on creativity were achieved. Chris received the Saskatchewan Centennial Medal for his work in the Arts in 2005.
Chris purchased SMALL SCULPTURES from friends and craftspeople David and Marilyn Goldsmith in 2010. He loved the original elegance and simplicity of the pieces. He has broadened the range of images; updated matte choices, and he continues to create an all Canadian product.
In 2011,through a serendipitous series of events, he moved the business from the Canadian Prairies to Invermere on the Lake in the Columbia River Valley of British Columbia. The mountain vistas inspire him and the relaxed lifestyle and his backyard studio allow him to continue to apply his attention to detail and high production standards.
SMALL SCULPTURES are based on original designs and are sculpted in fine pewter. The final finishing, framing and packaging is done by hand to ensure you a quality work of art for generations to come.
