I think American Craft Inquiry has arrived at a great time. Scholarly interest in craft has really blossomed in the last 10 years or so. There isn’t really a magazine that falls in-between that has a serious approach that’s fairly in-depth and researched that isn’t necessarily by and for academics and scholars. ~ Sarah Archer, contributing editor


 

American Craft Inquiry, the American Craft Council’s new publication, expands the Council’s position as a thought leader in the field. In the best tradition of intellectual exchange, Inquiry features in-depth essays on contemporary and historical issues, exhibition reviews, and a deep, detailed look at items from our archives. Founded on the principle of collaboration – with writers, curators, scholars, and artists – Inquiry seeks to provoke not only reaction, but action.
