Beginning in 1988, the Norton Family sent a limited edition Christmas gift to a wide list of friends in the art community and art institutions. Commissioned by an artist, the gift encompassed a variety of multi-media artworks including a porcelain ashtray, a printed fan, a woven blanket, a lifesaver, a dollhouse and a crazy coffee cup all of which later became a part of the Norton Family Art Projets. Comprised of an Ikebana kit, Esher Gunewardena created the Norton Gift for 2012 which included a staple bound instructional booklet on ikebana, a clay container and holder (b,c) by Gary Steinborn of Venice Clay, a bronze branch (a) made by Robert Wenzke of Artisan Bronze, a dried winter berry sprig.
