What People are Saying About This

Janet L. McCall

Van Dommelen has contributed a fascinating chapter in the history of American craft with this biography of a gentle visionary who believed in the power of art to change lives, and devoted his life to pursuing social justice through 'handicraft'. Eaton's vision is still very relevant today.
Executive Director, Society for Contemporary Craft

Frank Toker

Meticulously researched and documented; combines fun facts and stories with serious research and beautiful photography.
—author of Pittsburgh, An Urban Portrait (1986) and Falingwater Rising (2003)
