This volume reveals a major trend taking place today in visual and material culturethe radical appropriation of consumer goods as raw material for art- and object-making. A growing number of artists, craftspeople, and designers are realigning traditional craft practices with already manufactured objects and materials to marry the uniquely handmade with the uniformly mass-produced. Published to coincide with a show at the Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, Oregon, Manufactured offers an arresting look at the new crossover of craft, art, and design, and an exciting new cultural genre.Jr., 1963 Photo courtesy of The Andy Warhol Foundation, Inc./ Art Resource, New York, New York c 2008 Andy ...
