Overview

As created and produced by Carol Sauvion, the popular public television series Craft in America promotes handicrafts and encourages viewers interested in this area to follow their own creative instincts. It also places a particularly strong emphasis on examining the many ways that craft artists transcend skill itself to actually use the form for political or personal expression. This box set contains Season Three of the program, in its entirety. Subjects profiled in this season include Charles M. Carrillo, a santero artist from New Mexico who blends contemporary cultural iconography with period religious themes; Thomas Mann, a New Orleans-based sculptor and jewelry designer who launched the Techno-Romantic school; Joyce Scott, an artist from Maryland who uses quilting and beading to examine racial issues; and Beth Lipman, a glass artist from Wisconsin who parlays 17th Century still life symbolism into a series of meditations on social fragility in the midst of hedonism.
