NORFOLK BY DESIGN unearths the many creative people of this inspiring region and provides often isolated talents with an opportunity to showcase their work in pop-up exhibitions and online sales. We exhibit a diverse range of works in relaxed and eclectic pop-up events. We combine works by artists, designers, ceramicists, textile designers, photographers, furniture makers and craftspeople.
The designers we showcase include wood turner STEVE GORE ROWE. Our makers create beautiful pieces from decorative furniture, soft furnishings and objects for the home. All use a diverse range of materials, often natural, associated with the eastern region. Including seashells, to hand-turned wood and ceramics, to wool and glass.
Capturing the splendour of the natural landscape, the artists we feature including KATE GILES (right) depict the beauty of coastal reaches, open fields, fens and woodland, employing traditional painting techniques in figurative and abstract styles, including oil, watercolour and acrylic paints, as well as print and photography.
We have a selection of paintings, prints and drawings as well as jewellery and items for the home like these mills by PAR-AVION to suit your budget. Click below for a preview of gift ideas by Norfolk based makers.
Whether you are a collector, a trade professional or an individual looking for a unique piece, we can help you. Any commission made here ensures that you become part of the creative process from day one.
We take the uncertainty out of the process – we set the scope of the project with you, talking through the outcomes to ensure you get your commission on brief, on budget and on time.

Seriously excited to have the opportunity to be showing work by the late Philip Jones at our upcoming exhibition in the stables at Houghton Hall. Philip – whose work we are showing this year at our Houghton Hall Pop Up – was an English contemporary artist living in Norfolk. Philip drew his inspiration from the fields and landscape that surrounded him as well as from his travels abroad.
Ruth Howes is taking part in FESTIVAL this year. Her paper cuts are made with an absolute economy of materials and an intricate cutting process. The results are finely detailed and deftly finished.
Jonathan Clarke was born in 1961 in Suffolk, UK, where he continues to work today. At the age of 16 he took up an apprenticeship with his father, the sculptor Geoffrey Clarke (RA). He has works on commissions across the country including Colchester, Ely Cathedral, St James' Square, London and Southwell Minster.
