Maker-Artists of Milton Keynes Hardback
by Linda Wilks, Ann Pegg
As Milton Keynes celebrates its 50th birthday, Maker-Artists of Milton Keynes delves into the lives and work of twenty-five makers of hand-crafted artistic objects who are based in the city today.
The featured maker-artists are chosen for the ways in which their use of the traditional materials of ceramics, wood, metal, glass and textiles, in the words of William Morris, `beautifies the familiar matters of the everyday'.
As well as exploring their skills and displaying the delightful objects they make, this book uncovers the maker-artists' networks of local links to people and places.
Illustrated with beautiful colour photographs, this book explores how the landscape of Milton Keynes, from the recently built ultra-modern to the enduring pockets of historic buildings, stimulates and enhances the artistic lives of the makers.
