Series: Resurgence Anthologies

Craftspeople usually leave their work to speak for itself, so it is a rare privilege to have the thoughts, stories, experiences, observations, and feelings of such skilled people in a book. Most have been featured in Resurgence, the longest running UK environmental magazine, which regularly features crafts and their connection with spirituality, ecology, and sustainable, joyful living. The work of these craftspeople comes from a great dedication to their craft and the sincerity with which they integrate their philosophy with daily lifeā€”in much the same way that their bowls and baskets, chairs and tables, shoes and spoons are art for daily use. These essays, with beautiful accompanying color photographs, encourage us to have faith in the human spirit and the human endeavor.

She has been the art advisor at the Resurgence magazine for many years.
