Craft is changing. Once associated with wobbly pottery and wicker baskets, it now covers a broad range of makers and materials, from Japanese-inspired ceramics to coloured glass and Scandi patterned fabrics.
Yet craft’s core credentials remain the same. Accidental details still rule, but they have been reframed in slick shapes and minimalist designs, with only the right kind of imperfections left unsmoothed. Makers are staging a war on mass-produced items and devising soft, tactile objects made by hand, even if this means the occasional fingerprint.
