Deacons, J. & C.
Having trained at Strathearn Glass before moving to Perthshire Paperweights in 1968, John Deacons set up his own company J-Glass in 1978. Economic pressures forced him to close down operations in 1983. Another venture - making paperweights for the U.S. market - was called St. Kilda after an island off the coast of Scotland. Today John works from the small glass studio adjacent to his house in Crieff - and along with his son Craig - produces an amazing range of both millefiori and lampwork paperweights, including double, triple and encased overlays, which are signed with a JD cane or a JHD signature/date cane.
