Crafting History: Textiles, Metals and Ceramics at the University of Georgia

Crafting History: Textiles, Metals and Ceramics at the University of Georgia
For more than a century, the University of Georgia has provided students with opportunities to study craft—particularly textiles, metals and ceramics. This book (which accompanies the exhibition o the same name, on view at the museum February 1 – April 29, 2018) tells the story of a small department that began in home economics under the direction of women interested in practical applications of art and design, and now exists in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences as the Lamar Dodd School of Art, named for its long-time director. It features work by more than 30 faculty members who contributed to craft education at UGA (including Earl McCutchen, Frances Stewart Higgins, Glen Kaufman, Robert Ebendorf, Gary Noffke, Ron Meyers, Andy Nasisse and Ed Lambert). Through their work, it traces the history of studio craft in the United States and the cultural forces that shaped it. Authors Ashley Callahan, Annelies Mondi and Mary Hallam Pearse contribute nine chapters that trace the history of the program from the 1920s to the present, copiously illustrated in color.
