Batch; Craft, Design and Product

The Work of the Designer Maker

Batch; Craft, Design and Product
Not available
This is a glamorous book covering the new trend of international

designer-makers, showing the cream of the contemporary craft world, and

crossing most disciplines (incl. ceramics, textiles, wood, glass,

precious materials & metals). Designers and makers are pushing the

boundaries and concept of craft, taking it to a new level and making

small batches of work for large retail outlets which are finished to a

high standard. The book shows a glorious array of handcrafted objects,

with information gathered from each maker, explaining the ideas and

concept behind their products, and how they got started and developed

their work. The book also includes

lots of practical information on running a small craft business

effectively, such as liasing with manufacturers, dealing with press,

sourcing commissions, packaging and marketing. It contains a

gallery and design shop guide and will appeal to makers for both

visual interest and practical information, but also to buyers as a

directory

of contemporary craft makers at the top of their field.
