about

As part of a large oral history and survey project of the Research Center for Arts and Culture of Columbia University aimed at compiling information on craftspeople, ten informative and insightful narrative interviews were edited and collected for The Craftsperson Speaks. The artists represent a variety of disciplines and media and a balance of ethnicity, regionalism, and stage of career development. Each interview is prefaced by career data and followed by exhibit sources and honors, and a representative piece of work is illustrated. The volume's introduction offers an historic overview of American crafts, and a bibliography is included.

Editorial Reviews

?This book contains ten interviews with American craftspersons that were obtained as part of an oral history project of the Research Center for Arts and Culture of Columbia University. The interviews are transcribed verbatim and follow a set formula to elicit information about the interviewees' lives, careers, major exhibitions, and overall perception of success in their work. Those interviewed represent a diversity of age, sex, and ethnic background. A good introduction summarizes the place of the craftsperson in Western history. This book would be most useful in a career information collection or in an academic art library.?-Library Journal
