Book DescriptionMaterial Culture offers an excellent overview of the range and quality of contemporary Australian craft and design. Focusing on recent works in ceramics, glass, textiles, furniture, jewelry, and metal, it illustrates, through themes of structure, narrative, and transformation, the ways that some of Australia?s most highly regarded object designers and craft practitioners are expressing and giving meaning to our material culture. The book challenges perceptions about the nature ofobjects and their place in the Australian cultural landscape. Australia has benefited from the diversity of its practitioners and their broad range of backgrounds, many being immigrants to Australia from around the world.
