In this beautifully designed and illustrated volume, leading craft scholars, curators and artists come together to assess the post-War history and contemporary flourishing of craft in America. Their critical gaze encompasses craft practice by artists, professional makers, and amateurs; crafting as it takes place in the studio and in the domestic space, and as it is exhibited in museums and galleries; craft that uses materials and crafting in the digital arena, and critical issues confronting craft such as industry, education and digitization.

About the Author:

Nicholas R. Bell is the Fleur and Charles Bresler Senior Curator of American Craft and Decorative Art, at the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC, USA.

Review:

"Questions of handmaking (and re-making) have long loomed large in debates about U.S. national identity. This needed and wide-ranging volume brings together theorists, historians, and practitioners to think through the current place of craft from the studio to the street; fortunately, no consensus emerges. With its range of perspectives and objects, the collection of voices gathered here indicates the growing vitality of craft studies." -- Julia Bryan-Wilson, Associate Professor, Modern and Contemporary Art, University of California-Berkeley

"The crafts sit at the center of the cultural, social, and economic matrix of every nation, and in no nation have the modern crafts been more important than in America. This volume bristles with major contributions on the condition and position of American craft, from some of the key writers on the subject."-- Paul Greenhalgh, Director, Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, University of East Anglia
