In celebration of its seventy-fifth anniversary, the renowned Penland School of Crafts presents a visual and intellectual exploration of craft. This handsome volume showcases 137 pieces of work, spanning seventy-five years of craft history and covering a dazzling array of styles and materials– from functional pottery to neon. Ten original essays look at craft and craft education from perspectives which include anthropology, science, folklore, history, and cultural criticism. In addition to being the first in-depth examination of the history and impact of Penland School of Crafts, craft itself has rarely been as broadly defined, a carefully considered, or as thoughtfully presented as it is in this groundbreaking book.
