Crafts 279 – The July/August issue of 2019
Crafts 279 proposes new ways of thinking about production, provenance and place. A group of innovative craftspeople tell us how they are repurposing food waste, three architectural projects demonstrate how vernacular techniques can have surprising results, and the duo behind east London-based jewellery brand Tatty Devine divulge the secrets of their success.
Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos, who has just completed a swimming pool installation in Edinburgh, champions the value of cross-cultural exchange – a sentiment echoed by the founders of Golden Bridge Pottery in Pondicherry, southern India, while our columnist Glenn Adamson discovers jewellery makers designing work for the digital sphere only. Elsewhere, metalsmith Adi Toch interprets the chatter of materials, and we give the new wave of craft podcasts a hearing.
