Overview

This is a unique look at a cutting-edge group of international artists who place craft at the heart of their work, transforming everyday subjects and ordinary materials into artworks that are out of the ordinary.

The book features unusual works including the ephemeral ice-and-chocolate jewelry of Naomi Filmer; the almost-hidden installations by Yoshihiro Suda; thread and lace-work by Anne Wilson; and found metal sculptures by Olu Amoda. These innovative artists show that craft is a fundamental concern across many disciplines, and this redirection of materials, traditional techniques, and use of scale achieves extraordinary outcomes.
