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.
