The New Artisans: Handmade Designs for Contemporary Living
Showcases work by designers and makers who use craft techniques rather than mass-production methods to create stylish, whimsical, covetable objects.
The practice of handmade craft has undergone a huge resurgence in recent times. This book captures the new mood-a return to the unique and the artisanal.
The first part of the book profiles over seventy international artisans who represent an astonishing array of crafts. The profiles include information on what inspires each artisan and how they create their products, often in innovative or eco-conscious ways.
The second part of the book consists of an invaluable directory of products, divided into categories: art, ceramics, furniture, glasswork, jewelry, lighting, metalwork, paper and woodwork, stationery, tableware, and textiles. More than 800 color photographs illustrate the huge variety of design work on offer-exquisite paper flowers, handthrown pots and jugs, beaded necklaces, folk-inspired knitted scarves, handblown chandeliers, wooden table lamps, embroideries, and more. Resources include: contact details for the artisans, recommendations of shops, websites, and blogs to visit.
