Behind the Brooch

This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side.

This blog will also promote recycling and reusing by…See More

Get the book on Amazon!

What happens when professional craft artists are allowed to let loose when they get to explore their mischievous and irreverent sides? Find out in this groundbreaking book, which, for the very first time, reveals an entirely different side of serious craft. Hundreds of images and essays from all over the world allow you to gain insight into the creative minds of contemporary artists like never before.

A variety of traditional craft media are shown, such as furniture, ceramics, glass, fiber, jewelry, and metal, as well as a number of unique, nontraditional techniques. Even a bus shelter in London gets a creative make-over that is sure to make you smile!

The topics range from the playful to the serious, but the message is always most enjoyable. Humor in Craft is a treasure trove for craft aficionados and humor enthusiasts alike.

More information about the book, exhibitions, press and other hurrahs here.
