Crafted by Design
By Jeanette Cook

Inside New Zealand craft artists’ studios

Crafted by Design is a story not only of Kiwi ingenuity but also of world class artistic endeavour. In fact it's 55 stories, providing a vibrant cross-section of New Zealand's contemporary craft-art scene. The book takes the reader into the studios of some of this country's leading craft artists, ranging from pioneers of the mid-20th century studio craft movement to emerging younger talent beginning to make their mark in the new century. Stephen Robinson's photographs capture the artists and their work in full colour. Jeanette Cook's text outlines the inspiration and processes involved, the changes New Zealand craft art has seen, and the emergence of exciting new design elements.

The materials the artists use are sometimes commonplace, but the finished products shown here never are. From glasswork to guitars, hats to hei tiki, tapestry to teapots, and masks to moko, each is an individual work of enduring value. Many will be found in museum collections in years to come. But Crafted by Design displays them where they are most at home: in the natural environment, and in the studios of their creators. This book, itself a thing of beauty, is a fine tribute to the achievements of New Zealand craft artists.
