Edward Barnsley and his workshop

£100.00

Product description

A very good condition hardcover book with minor shelf wear. Dust jacket in very good condition with some discolouration to the spine, and some more obvious wear to the very top edge. Internally clean and bright. Gift inscription on the first page.

A study of the life and work of Edward Barnsley (1900-1987), a furniture designer and craftsman, who was involved with the beginnings of the Crafts Centre and the Crafts Council of Great Britain from the 1940s to the 1960s. His father, Sidney Barnsley, directly influenced by William Morris, was one of the major figures of the movement; Edward continued his work as a furniture designer and the struggle to live as a craftsman and convince others of the value of a life making things. He has been to furniture in the 20th century what Bernard Leach was to ceramics. His workshop in rural Hampshire, which produced over 7000 pieces, is now run as a training centre and continues to promote fine craftsmanship in a world which a century later is finding new values in the ideals of the Arts and Crafts Movement. This study continues the story of Morris, Ashbee, Gimson and the Barnsleys and other Victorian pioneers and complements recent publications on Leach, Cardew, Gill and Russell.
