There is a renewed and growing interest in the Arts and Crafts movement, in reaction to modern mass production of domestic items and building types, and to the voiding of craftsmanship from contemporary work. William Simmonds exhibited the dedication and the spiritual discipline that were at the root of the Arts and Crafts movement. Now that the illusory aesthetic of modernism has lost its appeal more and more people are turning back to the Arts and Craft period, in which an aesthetic more suited to the modern world was being discovered and propagated.
