Item description for The Beauty Of Craft: A Resurgence Anthology by Sandy Brown & Maya Kumar Mitchell...
Craftspeople usually leave their work to speak for itself, so it is a rare privilege to have the thoughts, stories, experiences, observations, and feelings of such skilled people in a book that enables us to share their insights on the nature of their work and the way they live. Most of the contributors have been featured in Resurgence magazine, which regularly features crafts and their connection with spirituality, ecology, and sustainable, joyful living.
The work of these creators comes from their great dedication to their craft and the sincerity with which they integrate their philosophy into daily life---in much the same way that their bowls and baskets, chairs and tables, shoes and spoons are art for daily use. Their words inspire and their works delight. These essays, accompanied by beautiful color photographs, encourage us to have faith in the human spirit and the human endeavor.
