What is Craft

Jeroen Verhoeven
Excellent piece in the V & A website about defining what is craft from key figures in the industry at all levels - well worth a read!  Here's a little taste below from Edmund de Waal - Practitioner.

'Craft is a starting place, a set of possibilities.  It avoids absolutes, certainties, over-robust definitions, solace.  It offers places, interstices, where objects and people meet.  It is unstable, contingent.  It is about experience.  It is about desire.  It can be beautiful.'
