This is a unique look at a group of international artists who place craft at the heart of their practice, transforming everyday subjects and ordinary materials into works that are out of the ordinary. The book features unusual works including the ephemeral ice and chocolate jewellery of Naomi Filmer, the almost hidden installations by Yoshihiro Suda, thread and lace-work of Anne Wilson and found metal sculptures by Olu Amoda. These innovative artists show that craft is a fundamental concern across many disciplines, and this redirection of materials and traditional techniques and use of scale achieves extraordinary outcomes.
