The Artist Craftsman In Australia

£19.50

Product description

Sub-titled 'A Close Look at the Work of 40 Top Australian Craftsmen'.
Hardback with dust jacket, both in VGC. Art Director & Design by Fay Bottrell. Photographs by Welsey Stacey.
A beautiful book in which craftsmen and women working in a wide variety of media explain what motivates them and show exciting examples of their work. The bible for anyone even remotely interested in the subject, this book showcases the work of 40 Australian craftsmen during the 1970s, and for once the women outnumber the men! Here we see the artists profiled in their studios and outdoor workspaces as they throw pots, rummage for scrap metal, dye wool and work the loom. A beautiful, full-colour publication – very rare as colour printing was so expensive back then – it is a book to savour, a book to keep returning to, a book that even the most experienced craftsmen will find inspiring.
