Overview

Showcases sixty new artisans whose work exemplifies the growing handmade element in contemporary product design
Collectable, one-of-a-kind artisanal objects—whether hand-woven textiles or handblown glass—have become a fixture of the modern home; and the artists who produce them are increasingly sought-after. In this follow-up volume to The New Artisans, design expert and lauded blogger Olivier Dupon continues his exploration of the most creative artisans working today.
Divided into two sections, The New Artisans II is the ultimate reference to the vibrant, creative world of the handmade. The first section profiles a range of designers, including descriptions of their backgrounds and technical approaches alongside photos of them at work and samples of their stunning creations. This global cast of artisans employs an array of craft traditions including weaving, crocheting, ceramics, paper arts, furniture-making, glass-blowing, metalworking, and more.
The second section is a directory of objects, categorized as art; ceramics; furniture; glasswork; jewelry, clothing, and accessories; lighting; metalwork; papercraft; tableware; decorative textiles and homewares; and functional textiles and homewares.

Editorial Reviews

American Craft
“This volume . . . with 60 profiles luxuriously dispersed over 300-some pages, is persuasive. It spans mediums, aesthetics,
business models, and continents. . . . And it succeeds in revealing the threads them connect them all. The composite image is that of a global movement—one that’s growing only stronger.”
