9781851777082: Handmade in Britain

Thomas Chippendale, Grinling Gibbons, William Morris, Josiah Spode, Josiah Wedgwood, Clarice Cliff—the history of handmade decorative arts in Britain boasts names known the world over. This important book explores hand-crafted British ceramics, metalwork, wood, textiles, and stained glass through objects from the renowned collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum and contributions from contemporary practitioners such as Grayson Perry and Edmund de Waal. Tracing Britain’s development from an unsophisticated importer of luxury goods during the Renaissance to one of the leading worldwide exporters of decorative arts by the end of the 19th century, it also looks at the social and cultural contexts in which particular crafts meet both functional and aesthetic demands.

Book Description V A Publishing, United Kingdom, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This important book forms part of the Handmade in Britain partnership between the VA and the BBC. Published as the culmination of a year-long season of programming over three series, it explores the history of making in Britain, looking across all media within the decorative arts. Handmade in Britain expands on the programmes, featuring key objects and makers in the VA s collection as well as contributions from contemporary practitioners. It traces Britain s status as an unsophisticated importer of luxury Renaissance goods, to becoming one of the leading worldwide exporters of decorative arts by the end of the nineteenth century, and discusses present-day making - particularly the relationship between industrialized and craft-based processes and practice. It also shows how the history of making in Britain is not a London-centric story, but one of regional centres across the country often suited to different manufacturers for specific reasons. Like the programmes, the book takes each tradition in turn, looking at ceramics, metalwork, wood, textiles and stained glass. Bookseller Inventory # AA29781851777082
