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.
Davina Barber from Norfolk by Design joins Bear Grylls, Ben Fogle, Louise Minchin & Cressida Cowell as a contributor to this packed edition on the wonders of the great outdoors in the Spring 2019 edition of the Independent Schools Magazine "Noticed". Here she explains how artists, makers and designers have been commissioned for her Brancaster Beach House.
Earlier this week Davina, Paul and I had the treat of visiting 4 of the ‘Yarmouth 5’ artists in their studios in the docklands of Great Yarmouth. Here are some images of their stunning work.
Take a look at our "Collection Guides". If you have someone who is particularly difficult to buy for, a Norfolk by Design Gift Voucher may be the answer - our Gift Vouchers are redeemable online or at our forthcoming pop up events throughout 2019.
The true Christmas season actually starts on Christmas Day itself. That's right: December 25 marks the official start of the 12 days of Christmas, the Christian tradition that shares its name with a relentlessly stick-in-your-head Christmas carol. Ruth Howes has created a series of twelve laser cuts taken from original paper cuts she has designed to mark the start of the Christmas season.
