Tell us about your business
Lynsey Johnstone Art was established 3 years, designing hand painted glassware from her studio in south Devon. Lynseys ranges have proved very popular with collectors who enjoy the complete ranges for display, or bespoke designs for events such as weddings and birthdays, as well as those who just enjoy a gin and tonic or glass of wine from a unique glass that is full of character.
What can you tell us about your entered products?
Lynseys 'Country Garden ' hand painted gin glass range was inspired from her daily experiences and memories of the wildflowers, natural foliage and wildlife of her rural surroundings near her home in South Devon. Her customers are always very complimentary about her vibrant designs with customers from UK and Europe. Her floral artwork onto glassware is eye catching and really does make gin taste better!!
Why did you choose to enter Gift of the Year 2021 and has the competition helped boost your brand in the past?
This is the first time Lynsey Johnstone Art has entered a competition, with the increasing success of country garden designs. We thought it would be a great chance to hopefully gain more exposure to help bring our eye catching designs on glassware for more people to enjoy!
