Craft New Zealand: The art of the craftsman
By Doreen Blumhardt & Brian Brake
More than 250 photographs - over 200 in full colour - capture the essence of hundreds of innovative and exquisite handmade items.
This book is a major statement - a lasting visual tribute to the exciting standards achieved by New Zealand craft workers.
Each piece has been carefully selected to display the remark able variety of crafts practised and the diversity of materials used in this country. They can be classified into nine broad groupings: enamelware, ceramics, fibres of all kinds, jade, bone, stone, glass, wood and plastics.
As well as covering 133 artists in all the major craft media, Craft New Zealand features four outstanding artist-craftsmen whose work transcends specific craft boundaries. They are Guy Ngan, John Drawbridge, Edgar Mansfield and Raymond Boyce.
As a magnificent exposition of the exciting developments in New Zealand crafts in recent years, this book is unique. It will be treasured by collectors, admirers and craftspeople themselves - in fact by all who relish the handmade in a machine-dominated world.
