Publisher's description: In these days of mass produced objects where people have become strangers to the process of making, it is comforting to know that there are still craftspeople working by hand and creating wonderful, unique products such as jewelry, ceramics, textiles, furniture and other crafts. Many draw their inspiration from nature and the world around them and each has a unique approach to their work and the area they have chosen to specialize in. 90 contemporary designer-makers from England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland are featured in this book. Working in a variety of materials from precious metals to clay, wood, and more, these artisans approach their work in a sustainable and eco-conscious way. Each designer-maker's work is illustrated and accompanied by a short essay providing insight into how they work and what inspires them. The book contains over 200 images with each designer-maker's work illustrated with photographs of their work, often commissioned specifically for Handmade in Britain. There is information about each individual's background and their creative philosophy.
