Welcome to Nordic Gnomes
The Gnomes I create are inspired by the rich Scandinavian traditions and my passion for geniune craftsmanship. Each Gnome is unqiue, carefully made with all natural materials and very often with repurposed beautiful finds that add history and depth to the new design.

Let Me Tell You A Story
A Swedish “Tomte” (or Gnome) is a small elf like creature that likes to take up residence near or under houses. He takes care of a farmer’s home and children, and protects them from misfortune, especially at night when the house folks are asleep.
Respect, a clean home, and a bowl of Christmas porridge with butter on Christmas Eve will make your Gnome happy.
