With a telling eye and refreshing intimacy, he reveals their thinking, creative processes, and rise to prominence. He takes the reader into their workshops and their hearts. Savage seeks to illuminate the soul of the artists’ work, and the influences and experiences that shaped them.

About the Author:

A designer and furniture maker for over 35 years, David Savage is one the world’s most highly regarded furniture makers. His work is sought after by collectors and lovers of handcrafts throughout the world. He has published over fifty articles for American, British, and European magazines. Savage will be hosting a 6-part BBC series on woodworking in early 2011.

Review:

"Conjuring up images of fresh-cut planks, sawdust, and varnish, author and fellow artisan David Savage takes us into the studio workshops of these craftsmen and craftswomen -- but in addition to their creative spaces, we are offered a glimpse into the minds and lives of the furniture makes as well. . . . Furniture With Soul's twenty profiles. . .will no doubt prove fascinating for woodworkers, yet those who know little about the field will also be intrigued and ultimately far better-informed. Savage's accompanying narrative is as smooth and compelling as his own furniture, and reflective of his many years of experience and passion for his soulful craft." -- ForeWord Reviews

Book Description Kodansha America, Inc. Hardback. Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Furniture with Soul: Master Woodworkers and Their Craft, David Savage, "Furniture with Soul" follows in the grand tradition of two other classic Kodansha books, "Sam Maloof: Woodworker" and "The Soul of a Tree: A Master Woodworker's Reflections" by George Nakashima. Both books have inspired several generations of contemporary artists working in wood, including most of the artists in the present book. Written by respected woodworker David Savage, who will soon host a BBC special on the subject, "Furniture with Soul" explores the philosophy, career, and the pivotal moments of struggle and inspiration of ten top craftspeople. Savage travelled throughout the United States and Britain to interview renowned artists in the field with candour and an uncompromising eye. As he puts it, The craftspeople featured in this book have lived lives dedicated to the creation of objects that will fill us with awe and wonder. These makers are at once artists and designers and top-of-the-line craftspeople, creating handcrafted objects in the small workshop or studio, stretching artistic boundaries, uninterested in mass-produced products. Their pursuit is excellence and the individuality that will make their work a landmark of our age. Savage shines the spotlight on some of the world's best woodworkers, including John Makepeace, John Cederquist, Jack Larimore, Gary Knox Bennett, and Peter Danko. With a telling eye and refreshing intimacy, he reveals the thinking, creative process, how each found his or her voice, and their rise to prominence. Savage seeks to illuminate the soul of the artists' work, and the concrete and inspirational moments of their lives that shaped them. Seller Inventory # B9784770031211
