Sculptor and writer Jonah dies at 84.

NORTH Wales sculptor and writer Jonah Jones died yesterday, aged 84.

His works include a plaque commemorating Dylan Thomas at Westminster Abbey and a bronze portrayal of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis.

The artist spent many years in the Criccieth area and then Minffordd, near Portmeirion, before moving to Cardiff a few years ago.

He was a close friend of the late Sir Clough, and undertook several sculptures and memorials commissioned by Sir Clough from 1945 until his death in 1978.

Highly regarded as a sculptor and carver of distinction, in more recent years he became a distinguished author. His best known books were A Tree May Fall, Lakes of North Wales and Zorn, also a memoir of Sir Clough, The Architect of Portmeirion.

He served with the Sixth Airborne Division (224 Parachute Field Ambulance) from 1944 onwards in Europe and the Middle East.

Married to writer Judith Maro, he is also survived by three children and their families.
