May 2013 Design SIP

As seen in the June/July 2013 issue of American Craft magazine...

Design Digital Issue
We’re fascinated by the intersection of craft and design, so we’re thrilled to announce that American Craft’s first-ever digital bonus issue is devoted to the subject. The Craft of Design issue features some of our best stories about handcrafted design from the past four years, a slew of new designer profiles, a whopping 13 pages of products, and more. Download your free copy on the App Store today.

Back in Craft
The Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco has secured a new space, half again larger than its previous digs; it reopened its doors April 6. Frequent American Craft contributor Deborah Bishop was on the scene in SF’s Dogpatch neighborhood. Read her take on the museum’s second debut.

Video Vault
We know you love to read about the talented makers who fill the magazine, but we like to take it a step further and bring you video interviews with as many of the featured artists from these pages as we can. Log on to see and hear wood sculptor Michael Bauermeister, fiber artist Lisa Klakulak, ceramist Judit Varga, and more.

Ted Talks
In late winter, ACC librarian Jessica Shaykett traveled to Pennsylvania to visit with fiber artist Ted Hallman, who gave her a special video tour of his installation “Suspended Harmonies: Fiber Art by Ted Hallman” at the Michener Art Museum in Doylestown. Go behind the scenes with the ACC Fellow as he talks about his process and the materials he used to create a one-of-a-kind natural wonderland for visitors to weave their way through.

Get Inspired
It’s Friday. You survived the week. Don’t you deserve a little reward? Indulge in a visual treat with our Heck Yes Craft series. Each Friday we feature striking visuals of an artist’s work we’re crazy about, such as Dolan Geiman’s sculptural silhouettes made from salvaged materials.
