This book focuses on non-factory producers of furniture and ceramics. Beginning with a brief historical review of modern design, which started in Europe and challenged American craftsmen to make a design statement of their own, David Rago profiles some of the stars of midcentury pottery: Edwin and Mary Scheier, Gertrud and Otto Natzler, Peter Voulkos, Rose Cabat, and Maija Grotell. Summary biographies and evaluations identify the forms or elements that make their works valuable collectibles. While the designs of a variety of independent furniture markers are showcased, John Sollo features Paul Evans, Phil Powell, George Nakashima, Wharton Esherick, and Vladimir Kagan, whose pieces are highly prized in the collector's market., English, Year2001, Illust.
