quiirk has been founded by two friends – Kate and Jo. we are old school friends who have stayed in touch through the years, and seen each other through many and various jobs, each with over 15 years of experience in finance, project management, the civil service and advertising. but in 2013 we decided the time had come to test the friendship to the max, by creating a business that reflects our joint passion about design for the home. our aim is really simple.
we want to bring beautiful one-off and limited edition pieces to your home. we have talked to hundreds of amazingly talented artists and designers of glass, pottery, textiles, prints and furniture. we have found our artists from all over the country. some are established in their field; others are a new talent in the art and design world. We have selected the pieces that we love and put them under one ‘roof’ – the quiirk website.
we truly believe that a unique hand-blown glass fruit bowl can set your kitchen apart from another. we want to make individual pieces easily accessible to everyone, enabling you to reflect your personality and style. we believe that these handmade items are art for the home. so happy browsing and we hope that you love the pieces as much as we do.
