"Looking Forward, Glancing Back documents the fiftieth anniversary of the five-state craft membership organization Northwest Designer Craftsmen, with 136 color photographs of art objects made by its members. Lloyd Herman discusses the evolution of handmade objects in the past fifty years, contrasting the 1950s with objects made in the present. He observes not only the change from functional to purely expressive art objects in clay, metal, wood, fibers, and glass, but the technical and stylistic diversity in the field today."
