Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These 500 tables are more than just practical places to set a coffee cup or notepad; theyre inspired works of art. Esteemed juror Andrew Glasgow has selected a wide array of styles and forms, from pieces that showcase masterful woodwork to ones that feature alternative materials and aesthetic sensibilities. The striking examples include Gord Peteran¹s end table fashioned from swirling red electrical wire, Boris Bally¹s small square transit table made of recycled aluminum traffic signs, and Stephen Whittlesey's "Eddy," which uses driftwood, salvaged oak, and chestnut. More than 300 artists are featured, and every work offers readers stunning craftsmanship, constant surprise, and beauty.

Book News Annotation:

The selection was made by Andrew H. Glasgow, the Executive Director of the American Craft Council, which publishes American Craft magazine and produces the American Craft Shows. The tables display a broad range of styles and materials and represent an array of continents of origin and intended uses. Some are impressive works of art; some you could actually set something on. The color photographs are captioned with the artist's name, the piece's name and date, dimensions, and materials. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
