Overview

Mississippi would be a different state culturally without the excellence of handcrafted products by the talented members of the Craftsmen's Guild of Mississippi. For four decades, the Craftsmen's Guild of Mississippi has been a driving force in supporting local artisans and in sculpting the craftsmen of tomorrow. Since 1973, the Guild itself has been exposing Mississippians to fine art crafted from our state's own valuable, natural resources by the hands of our own talented citizens.

This volume, with over 160 images, celebrates Mississippi's finest craftsmen, forty of the Guild's talented artisans, on the fortieth anniversary of the founding of the Craftsmen's Guild of Mississippi.

The Guild's craftsmen fostered change in the way people perceive craft and elevated craft to fine art. I Am a Craftsman: 40 at 40 shares their stories and remarkable talents.

From the Publisher
