“Craft is cool at the moment; we are experiencing a renaissance for crafts in Norway where people seem to grow more interested in eco-friendly, locally produced, quality products,” says ceramist and co-owner Nina Gresvig, who joined Villvin in 1980.
In 1988, the group established Galleri Villvin, where currently more than a hundred Norwegian and Scandinavian artisans are exhibiting ceramics, glass works, jewellery, textiles and artwork in many other materials. “The gallery has customers all over Norway and we arrange for the craft works to be sent directly to your home,” explains Gresvig. “By doing so, we are able to provide high-quality art and crafts to people all year round.”
