Each of the works for the home we are currently exhibiting in our pop up in the stables at Houghton Hall is unique and shows that in order to have something beautiful, handmade for the home you needn't necessarily spend a fortune. By buying carefully through tried and tested sources like Norfolk by Design, anyone with an eye for good design can put together a home, where carefully considered component choices count.
Still life, nature morte: the image of a fruit just before it tips to rot, roses plucked at the height of their blossoming. The refrain “still life” gradually acquires another meaning — “not yet, still here". Take a look at these paintings by Joceline Wickham - Norwich based artist.
Kate Giles has completed a new series of landscapes capturing the changing light as summer progresses. Glints of light piece through thickening branches of Hawthorne and Apple as blossom emerges and the boughs begin to take the strain. Rain showers create a rush of growth across the county and life bursts through.
The works of Michael Woods are focused on the form and shape of the ancient pottery traditions, realized in a contemporary style. We have just received some new pieces in his "Landscape" series and are showcasing them as part of our pop-up exhibition in the stables at Houghton Hall.

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.

All employ traditional painting techniques in figurative and abstract styles, including oil, watercolour and acrylic paints, as well as print and photography.
