Description

The remarkable gift of contemporary crafts bestowed on the Fitzwilliam Museum by Nicholas and Judith Goodison is the subject of this highly illustrated book. Built up over two decades, it numbers over 120 outstanding examples of contemporary ceramics, glass, furniture, woodwork, metalwork and jewellery by artists such as Martin Smith, Philip Eglin, Anna Dickinson, David Reekie, Alan Peters, David Poston, Adam Paxon and John Makepeace. The book contains a conversation between the editor and Nicholas Goodision, a fully illustrated catalogue, and a glossary of materials and techniques. It tells us much about the craft world and is a record of skill, great beauty and elegance of design.
