Long DescriptionHere is the first comprehensive survey of modern craft in the United States. Makers follows the development of studio craft--objects in fiber, clay, glass, wood, and metal--from its roots in nineteenth-century reform movements to the rich diversity of expression at the end of the twentieth century. More than four hundred illustrations complement this chronological exploration of the American craft tradition. Keeping as their main focus the objects and the makers, Janet Koplos and Bruce Metcalf offer a detailed analysis of seminal works and discussions of education, institutional support, and the philosophical underpinnings of craft. In a vivid and accessible narrative, they highlight the value of physical skill, examine craft as a force for moral reform, and consider the role of craft as an aesthetic alternative. Exploring craft's relationship to fine arts and design, Koplos and Metcalf foster a critical understanding of the field and help explain craft's place in contemporary culture. Makers will be an indispensable volume for craftspeople, curators, collectors, critics, historians, students, and anyone who is interested in American craft.

We upgraded the database quite a bit. We are doing a better job of locating data around the web and for the most part. We have added links from one product to similar products to help you find what you are looking for.

So one thing you will see is that we have more links on the site and more images. We have improved our searching functions to give you more options.

Over the next few days we will be adding pricing information when we can get it for any given product.

We have also started linking more agressivly to Amazon. This is because people keep coming to the site trying to buy products. At first we were all about data with little interest in selling but since people are often trying to buy, we want to make it easier and besides, we make a couple bucks in the process.

We don't want to get in the way of the original goal of providing product and company data, but we want to provide you with as much other information as possible at the same time.
