SUZI JOEL
Suzi's work contemplates attachment and habitat, using a variety of materials including wood and woven fibre, with her latest projects using the seaweed-like Flustra Foliacea. A bryozoan, Flustra Foliacea grows in the temperate waters of the North Atlantic seaboard, binding itself to substrates such as rock and lengthening with strong tides. Through bringing it into an altogether unfamiliar context - trading the sea for an oak frame - her latest works invite new perspectives. Each piece is bespoke and commissions can be made for specific dimensions different to those listed.

CAROLYN BROOKES DAVIES
Carolyn graduated from the Royal College of Art in1982. After a twenty-five year career in London as a fashion designer she moved to North Norfolk in 2003. Carolyn’s background in sculpture, her love of natural form and the close proximity of the beach led her to indulge a childhood interest in shell collecting.

Shells with their accidental beauty, subtle colours, variety in shape and texture appealed to her. Their endless ornamental possibilities have inspired her recent shell work of elaborately decorative objects, which are as exquisitely beautiful, intricate and unique as the shells themselves.

SARAH SIXSMITH
Sarah designs and produces small runs of hand printed wallpapers. She grew up in the English countryside, with its lovely corners of unspoilt land and beautiful, wild flora and fauna. Having lived mostly in cities since then, it’s made Sarah very aware of the rural – urban contrast, and the evident disconnection we have with nature and its amazing systems. She uses design to highlight these invaluable natural rhythms and inspire a stronger connection with nature, in both the countryside and the city. She now lives in Norfolk.
