A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

From dust jacket notes: "The crafts artists whose work is shown here represent a new breed. Concerned not primarily with the expression of material and natural form as were their predecessors, these crafts artists are direct descendants of the Arts and Crafts movement that shaped the early part of this century. Their ethos is the unifying moral and artistic force of craft and the reconnection of that force with the everyday. These artists, working in wood, glass, metal, and tile, come to their craft with formal backgrounds in fine arts, architecture, industrial design, even psychology and theology. They work in a dazzling array of styles that draw from historical work, folk art, modern painting, architecture, and high technology, as well as the traditions and techniques of fine craftsmanship...."

From Library Journal:

This book documents the work of a group of contemporary craft artists seen as descending from the Arts and Crafts movement of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. An initial survey of the arts and crafts tradition moves from the turn-of-the-century work of Stanford White and Louis Comfort Tiffany to such giants as Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles Sumner Greene, and Henry Mather Greene. An extensive middle section provides examples of many craft styles of furniture and sculpture as they have been incorporated into the overall design and decoration of contemporary homes and offices. A final section introduces the remarkable work of over 30 individual craft artists, such as Ray King, Elizabeth MacDonald, Albert Paley, and Judy Kensley McKie, working with glass, tile, metal, and furniture. Throughout, the artists' work is well illustrated by over 300 color photographs. A directory of craft galleries and organizations across the country is an excellent supplement. Recommended for specialists and for the general reader.
