"In these days of mass produced objects where people have become strangers to the process of making, it is comforting to know that there are still craftspeople working by hand and creating wonderful, unique products such as jewellery, ceramics, textiles, furniture and other crafts. Many draw their inspiration from nature and the world around them, each has a unique approach to their work and the area they have chosen to specialize in. 90 contemporary designer-makers from England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland are featured in this book.Working in a variety of materials from precious metals to clay, wood, and more, these artisans approach their work in a sustainable and eco-conscious way. Each designer-maker's work is illustrated and accompanied by a short essay providing insight into how they work and what inspires them.With over 200 illustrations, Handmade in Britain is both a guide for people interested in buying handcrafted products as well as a resource for art and design students."
