A Glimpse of Thai Craft-Based Contemporary Art

Even though Thailand is well-known for its craft and mass-produced decorative products, its craft-based contemporary art is relatively unknown to both local and international markets. Therefore it was my great pleasure to be able to let the world see the kind of craft-based contemporary art created by Thai artists within the past few years.  In this exhibition three fields of craft-based contemporary art are presented:  ceramics (4), jewelry (3) and wood (1).  I hope you enjoy and appreciate…See More

New issue of Journal of Modern Craft - Writing Things Well

Posted on June 5, 2011 at 7:44am 6 Comments

The latest issue of Journal of Modern Craft 4.1 contains an interview with A.S. Byatt. author of the Children's Book which explores the Edwardian attitudes to craft. In that she expresses some strong views:

"I decided that a kind of rather flat skepticism, and making things, making things well, is better than a utopian attempt to reform society." A.S. Byatt

New issue of Journal of Modern Craft - Does Craft Want to be Free?

Posted on August 29, 2010 at 1:16am 0 Comments

To coincide with the release of JMC 3.2, the online version of the journal has a focus on creative commons for craft.



Traditionally, craft evolved in guilds that limit access to technical knowledge and controlled prices. Today there is talk of

‘digital guilds’ that use open platforms to freely share information.

Yet, the modern design industry depends on the notion of intellectual

property to encourage investment in innovation. How do current systems

like Creative… Continue

There's a refreshing difference of opinions, particularly between theory and

Posted on April 12, 2010 at 8:08am 0 Comments

The first issue of 2010 for Journal of Modern Craft is out now, with a special focus on Japan. In this case we will be considering in particular the role of the copy in traditional Japanese craft.



The Japanese concept of dentō kōgei ( 'traditional art crafts') recognises the practice of reproducing classic works as an ideal of 'formative expression'. The studio craft movement of the West valued originality. In modern art, the… Continue

Purchase of ART or CRAFT Does NOT Purchase the Copyright or the Right to Copy
