A survey, a resource guide, a source of inspiration and a celebration of the creativity and reach of Swedish craft, this book shows the work of 247 of the leading craft artists in Sweden today. Many of these artists are deeply influenced by the natural world, using organic shapes and floral and animal motifs to transform everyday objects of the home and workplace into evocative art. Featuring artists from Skane in the south to the Arctic Circle in the north, this profusely illustrated and impeccably designed book looks at glass, ceramics, textile, wood, concrete, metal, plastic, and stone work in over 600 photos. Maps and the craft artists own words place their dazzling work in the context of Sweden and our modern world.
