Summary
"The Maker's Hand is one of the first books about the studio furniture movement, and no doubt the most authoritive. Written by two leading experts in the field, it details the history and development of studio furniture, from its origins in post-World War II America through its explosion in the "back-to-nature" sixties, metamorphosis in the "techno" seventies, and professional emergence in the eighties. Along the way, the authors show how changes in American tastes, technology, and culture have influenced these pieces. Also included are extensive biographies of some forty furniture makers, as well as guides to the main exhibitions, schools, and galleries. Profusely illustrated with works by Castle, Maloof, Mary Gregory, John Cederquist, Judy Kensley McKie, and many others, this is an indispensable guide to the inventive, often witty, always surprising world of studio furniture."--Jacket
