Flow was established in October 1999 by Yvonna Demczynska to show case both British and international contemporary crafts. The gallery holds 6 exhibitions a year. It is located in the heart of Notting Hill, a truly multi-cultural area of London.
Yvonna, of Polish origin has worked internationally before founding flow, both for the Design Council and Crafts Council as well as a number of companies in Japan and the USA.
She travels widely in search of international work which has always been her interest and explores the inter-cultural nature of contemporary crafts in some of her shows.
She still organises groups of British makers at Handmade show in New York which she first started some 20 years ago. It has always been her ambition to run a gallery and display work which she personally admired and would like to own. Her aesthetic has been described as a mixture of Japanese and Scandinavian which is also reflected in her collection at home. Her other inspiration is Kettle’s Yard.
