The Maker's Hand

American Studio Furniture, 1940-1990

Text by Edward S. Cooke, Kelly H. L'Ecuyer, Gerald W. R. Ward.

The Studio Furniture movement began around the middle of the twentieth century, as a revival of the Victorian Arts and Crafts Movement, and as a reaction against the ongoing domination of mass-produced rote furniture. Over the course of subsequent decades, studio furniture has taken many directions, from the reproduction of period styles to designs that resemble sculpture more than furniture. The Maker's Hand is the most authoritative book to date about the Studio Furniture movement. It details the history and development of Studio Furniture, from its origins in post-World War II America to its current prominence. Also included are extensive biographies of some 40 furniture makers, as well as guides to the main exhibitions, schools and galleries. Profusely illustrated with works by Wendell Castle, Sam Maloof, Molly Gregory, Wharton Esherick and many others, this is an indispensable guide to the inventive world of Studio Furniture.
