By Hand

The Use of Craft in Contemporary Art

Book - 2010
Rate this:
Available now in a paperback edition, our critically acclaimed By Hand features the work of thirty-two artists whose innovative and unexpected uses of handicraft techniques such as embroidery, sewing, knitting, and crocheting are making the age-old craft versus art debate obsolete. From Kiki Smith's lovingly etched birds, to Barb Hunt's knitted land mines to dynamo-ville's one-of-a-kind puppets, to Evil Twin's handstitched publications, the artworks in By Hand revel in the care and consideration of craft.
