This beautifully illustrated book focuses on art, philosophy and storytelling, yet is an entirely fictional story, blending the mythic worlds of fairy tale, fantasy, romance and adventure. It creates a bridge between literature, art world approaches to concept and narrative and craft traditions. The story is "illustrated" using an exciting new body of work by Binh Pho, which combines wood-turning, sculpture, painting and art glass. As the storyline explores collaboration, a diverse group of international artists were brought together to collaborate with the artist, Binh Pho on works of art that celebrate traditional craft materials and processes that redefine the boundaries of contemporary art. A leading figure in the new international movement in contemporary wood sculpture, Pho utilizes modernist approaches to painting and sculpture to create bold new work that bridges the decorative arts with concerns for narrative and concept traditionally associated with contemporary art. The author, Kevin Wallace is the Director of the Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts in Ojai, California. He is a regular contributor to numerous international publications and has guest-curated exhibitions for a number of art museums. Previous books by Wallace include "The Cutting Edge: Contemporary Wood Art and the Lipton Collection;" "Celebrating Nature: Craft Traditions/ Contemporary Expressions;" "Transforming Vision: The Wood Sculpture of William Hunter, 1970 - 2005;" "River of Destiny: The Life and Work of Binh Pho;" and "Moulthrop: A Legacy in Wood."
